SOME COLONIAL HOPPER FAMILIES. 



BY HARRY SHELMIRE HOPPER,. A.M. 



The name of Hopper is an old one in America and several 
distinct lines appear among the records and families of colo- 
nial times. The following outline may serve as a guide for 
more complete research. 

In the latter part of the seventeenth century, two or three 
distinct families of the name of Hopper settled in the vicin- 
ity of New York City. The name occurs frequently in the 
early records of New Jersey and New York but it is not, in 
cverv instance, a matter of certainty to which one of the two 
or three lines it may belong. 

One family is of three brothers supposed to have been 
Quakers who left their native country to avoid religious per- 
secution and settled in Flushing, Long Island, about the 
year 1675. They were natives of County Durham, Eng- 
land. About the year 1 700 they appear to have left Long 
Island, and with manv other families removed to New Jer- 
Bey and settled in Gloucester County in the vicinity of the 
'own of Woodburv. Here the family dwelt, and increased 
for several generations. The nearness of the city of Phila- 
delphia, Pennsylvania, seems to have had much to do with 
drawing them away from their New Jersey homes. They 
frequently married in Philadelphia and removed their busi- 
ness io that city and elsewhere, until now there are none of 
Iheir descendants to be found in the neighborhood of Wood- 
bury. The names of the three brothers who settled in Long 
Island, according to family traditions, were John, Robert and 
Christopher. The names of John and Christopher appear 

(l) 



2 SOME COLONIAL HOPPER FAMILIES. 

in the Documentary History of New York as residents of 
Flushing in 1G98, but only the descendants of John have 
been traced in succeeding generations. Possibly the de- 
struction by fire of the records of Flushing in 1789 may 
have deprived us of much information concerning the family. 
The descendants of John Hopper are now to be found in 
many states and widely scattered. 

The tradition is that the first generations of the family in 
America were Quakers. Xo Friends' Records have, us yet, 
been found to verify this. Their names, however, do not 
appear among any Revolutionary or other military records, 
which faot would indicate that they were men of peace, con- 
sistent with their Quaker principles. 

Anions the New Jeiscy rueoius also appears thy name 
of Robert Hopper, who owned land in Burlington, N. J., 
in 1683. He was described as of Scarborough, Countv of 
York, England. York adjoins Durham County, which raises 
the suggestion that this Robert was one of the three brothers. 
He also owned land in Philadelphia. Family records state 
that Robert was a seafaring man and, in harmony with this 
there are records that Robert Hopper was master of a 
ship named '' The Providence ' : and made voyages to Phil- 
adelphia from Scarborough, m 1683. His only daughter 
and heir died in England about 1701. 

In the New Jersey Records, the name of Hopper occurs in 
Salem County as early as 1725 and as late as 1761. That 
this family was connected with the preceding family seems 
very probable but the links have not yet been established. 

At the same time that the name of Hopper appears in 
Flushing, Long Island, it appears in New York city and also 
on the New Jersey side of the Hudson in Bergen County, 
etc. These last two lines were from Holland and are repre- 
sented by many descendants in the old neighborhoods. A 
well-known landmark of old New York city was the Hopper 
Farm which was a family homestead in bygone generations. 
In New Jersey, the Hopper House was a headquarters 
during the Revolution. 



SOME COLONIAL HOPPER FAMILIES. 3 

The Holland Hoppers came to America in the first half of 
the seventeenth century. The early ancestors were Andrie 
or Andreas and Mathias. One of them settled on Manhat- 
tan Island in New York city and later at Bloomingdale and 
the other in Bergen County, New Jersey. One of the de- 
scendants of Mathias was Jasper who was appointed Deputy 
Secretary of State of New York in 1791. 

Hiker's History of Harlem gives 1652 as the date when 
thi< family arrived in America. One of the descendants 
•rives 1620 as the date according to family tradition. 

The family has many branches and numerous descendants 
bow living in New York city and state and in Newark, 
Itackensack, Jersey City and other places. The name an.. 
[ward frequently in the lists of early New York, and New 
Jersey marriage lists and in Revolutionary records. 

About 179o, there lived a Captain James Hopper who 
was born in Chester, England, who was the owner in New 
V..;k of vessels in the merchant service. He and his bfotti- 
• re were sons of William H. Hopper. This appears to have 
beeu a distinct familv from other New York lines. De- 

endants now live in Utica, New York. 

In the State of Maryland a prominent family of the name 
"f Hopper is represented by many branches and trace their 
nccstry to colonial times. They have been designated as 
if. i' Eastern Shore Hoppers, in distinction from the descend- 
ants of the Maryland branch of the Long Island and Wood- 
bury family. As early as 1676 the name of Captain William 
Hopper appears as a member of the Maryland Legislature 
I >r Queen Anne's County. He was probably an ancestor 

this family. Many of them attained distinction and have 

ctipied positions of prominence and honor. 

Hoppers appear to have early settled in Virginia and from 

there to have spread through western and southern states. 

. hQve were settlers of the name also in other southern states 

in the eighteenth century. They came from Ireland or 

England. 



4 SOME COLONIAL HOPPER FAMILIES. 

One family, composed of William, John, Hugh and Alex- 
ander, came with their parents from northern Ireland to 
America in 1753 and settled in Newberry District, South 
Carolina. Some of them subsequently located in Alabama. 
There are a number of descendants of this family. 

About the time of the Revolution a settler named Hopper 
emigrated from Wales to South Carolina and later moved to 
Kentucky. Descendants live in Indiana. 

One Robert Hopper came from Ireland to America prior 
to the Revolution and settled in Fayette County, Pennsyl- 
vania. The family is represented in the western states, 
Robert is said to have had a brother who settled on the 
eastern shore of Maryland. This suggests a possible con- 
nection with the Eastern Shore Hoppers. 

In or prior to the year 1787 a family appeared in Phila- 
delphia from England. Descendants are now in New York 
city and in Florida. According to Bible records, their an- 
cestors were John and Sarah Hopper who w^ere married ir 
London in 1773. Some of their children were born in Eng 
land and some in Philadelphia. The wife, Sarah, came from 
Herefordshire, England. 

In Savage's Genealogical Dictionary is the name of Danie 
Hopper of New Haven in 1654 with the suggestion that i' 
was intended for Hooper; and in the Rhode Island Census 
for 1774 is the family of Henry Hopper of South Kingston 
There were six in the family, four males and two females. 

These records indicate that there w r ere early families of th< 
name in New England. Some of the traditions of the Dur- 
ham Hoppers state that one of the brothers located in Neu 
England. 

Fragmentary records of other families of the name have 
been found in various places which suggest still other line; 
that have no connection with any of the above. 



MAIRE POINT PAPERS, NO. I. 



BY EBEN PUTNAM. 



MAIRE OR MARE POINT, BRUNSWICK, CUMBERLAND CO., 

MAINE. 

. The region about Brunswick was inhabited by the Pejep- 
scot tribe of Indians, who were probably never very numer- 
ous. 

At various points along the eastern shore of Maire Point 
may still be seen the remains of shell heaps created by the 
Indians upon occasions of their annual visits to the shore. 
The Quoghog, now practically extinct in those waters, then 
abounded, and the shells are found mixed with those of the 
clam and bones of birds and animals. Unlike the shell 
heaps further east, casual examination of these remains have 
not revealed many implements of Indian manufacture. In 
the field to the north of Blockhouse Hill Mr. Hill found a 
stone ax and elsewhere on his farm found another similar 
ax. One of these is now preserved at Bowdoin College. 

John McKeen, Esq., in a lecture, referred to by Wheeler, 
stated that it was probable, from the remains and relics found 
there, that the Pejepscots in the sixteenth century had a vil- 
lage at Maire Point. 

It is said, that, up to the opening of King Philip's war, the 
settlers about Brunswick lived on friendly terms with their 
Indian neighbors. 

DERIVATION OF NAME. 

The point of land projecting south from Brunswick, and 
M,,w tying wholly within the limits of that town, is various- 
ly called Mair, Mare and Mere Point. 

(*) 



6 MAIRE POINT PAPERS, NO. I. 

Williamson, in his history of Maine (vol. 1, p. 564, note), 
states that John Mare 1 was an early settler on the Point. 
Wheeler, in the History of Brunswick (p. 83), inclines to 
the opinion that a man named Marr (or Mare) lived on the 
Point, and that Mair, the spelling he adopts, is a corrup- 
tion. 

I have found no evidence of occupation of the Point by 
either John Mare or a man by the name of Marr ; indeed 
the latter supposition does not seem at all probable. The 
brook bearing the same name, which is between the point and 
the town, seems to suggest the probability that some person 
named Mair, lived near the upper end of the point and both 
point and brook were so called after him. There was also a 
Maire's brc ok In Sa< ■ 

While I have found no trace in Maine of a John Mare in those 
early times, I have found a John Mare taxed at Salem, Mass., 
in 1683 and a Walter Mare of Saco, in 1659, and a Richard 
Mayre at Black point, in 1661 ( York deeds, vol. I, p. 145). 
It is extremely probable that one or all of these individuals 
may have lived for a time near the point and bestowed their 
name upon it. 

The correct spelling, if we adopt that of the time, would 
undoubtedly be Maire, Mayre or Mare ; the final e should be 
always retained. For Mere there is no authority whatso- 
ever ; it has merel} 7 taken root from the partial adoption by 
some persons of the theory of a French origin of the name. 

In 1620, King James I granted a charter to forty persons, 
noblemen, knights and gentlemen,, constituting them the 
Council of Plymouth and granting them the country from 
the fortieth to the forty-eighth parallel of latitude and from 
the Atlantic to the Western sea. 

From the Council of Plymouth emanated the grants to 
the Plymouth company of New England, the Kennebec (or 
New Plymouth) Company, the Muscongus (or "Waldo) Com-

Ft., North Yarmouth. See York Deeds, and Willis, Portland, Me., Hist. Col. 1, 65.

pan} 7 , and to the Pemiquid Company, as well as, upon the 16 
June, 1632, that to Thomas Purchase and George Way, 
which lands were finally transferred to the Pejepscot Company. 
In Wheeler's History of Brunswick will be found a statement 
of the title of the Pejepscot company compiled from authen- 
tic sources. 

Thomas Purchase had settled near the Androscoggin prior 
to 1628, and is styled of "Pagiscott" as early as 1639, when, 
on the 22 day of the 5th month, lie placed his patent under 
the government of Massachusetts Bay. His claim included 
M;tire Point ( ?). 

The history of Maire Point falls into four periods : the pe- 
riod prior to Purchase's settlement on the coast ; the period 
. f ivv r !i^ Vi occur) ition til! driven away by the Indian war? of 
1675-7; the intermediate period between that date and the 
purchase and re-settlement of the country by the Pejepscot 
eompany and that since the re- settlement. The first period 
has already been briefly noticed. Materials for the second 
period are scanty. The third period is expressed in a few 
words, desertion and desolation, while it is with the last period 
that these papers have the most to do. 

second period 1628-1677. 

Maire Point was occupied at times by (John Maire or Mare ?) , 
Thomas Hay nes, the Phippeny's, or more correctly Phippens, 
James Carter, Nicholas White,. John Scares, James Lane, 
Thomas Redding. 

Thomas Haynes 1 was a resident of Casco Bay as early as 
N>58, when he lived at Maquoit ( Willis, Me. Mist. Coll. I, 
'>•*>) ; but at a date subsequent to 1664, removed to Lynn. 
In a deposition dated 21 July, 1684, he and wife Joyce, 
and Sampson Penley state that "having all been autient in- 
to bitauts in Casco Bay, that twenty years last past the In- 
dians had sold to Francis Smale, an Indian trader, the 
Vslaml of Sebascoe Diggin, etc," York Deeds, IV, 19. On

the 2 Aug., 1678, Thomas, Hayns, husbandman, and wif< 
Joyce, once of Maquoyt, now of Lynn, sell to Edward Crick* 
of Boston, tailor, for £17-11-2, 200 acres of upland and fiv< 
acres of marsh, or more commonly called "beareberry 
Marsh," lying in the head of Casco Bay in the town of West 
gostuggoe at Mayco} r t, being bounded by Alexander Thaw it: 
land on the northwest fronting by the bay or into the baj 
southeast and the "bareberry" marsh butting upon the ba} 
northwest, and also the dwelling house on the premises 
Savage confounds him with Thomas of Amesbury, who diet 
in 1G83, leaving a widow Martha. 

William Haynes of Falmouth, a schoolmaster, may hav< 
been a son. He married, prior to 1672, Margery, widow o 
JSicLc/ici& White and removed to Lynn at the time of thi 
Indian troubles, thence to Portsmouth about 1686, and final 
Iv to Newbury, where he died in 1702. He had a soi 
Francis. 

This William Haynes was a witness to a date dated % 
Dec, 1669, at Westquatogoe, made by Richard Bray of tha 
place. James Lane was also a witness. York Deed*, III, 53 

In 1667 Nicholas White of WesU>osto2:2;oe sold to Join 
Wallis lands at Papoding in Casco Bay, and receipts foi 
payments upon the purchase are given after and in 1672 bj 
William Haynes and in 1673 by Haynes and his wife Mar 
ge ry . Yo rh Deeds, II 181. 

In Oct., 1683, he witnessed the deed of John Blany o: 
Lynn, and Elizabeth his wife, administratrix and relict o 
Thomas Purchase, of the lands at Pejepscot to Ricliarc 
Wharton. York Deeds, IV, 16 ; the following year he ap 
pears at or near Kittery. John White was also a witness t< 
the Blany deed. 

George Phippenor Phippeirv is said by Wheeler, who alsc 
mentions Andrew Phippeny as a resident, to have lived oi 
Maire Point, prior to 1672. The testimony of George anc 
Elizabeth Phippen was given 20 Feb., 1702-3, that Nich 
olas White was a resident of Maire Point in 1660 till driver

away by the Indians, and probably places them as residents 
of that date. George Phippen of Maire Point and Joseph 
Phippen of Falmouth were sons of David and Sarah Phip- 
pen, who migrated from Melcomb, in Cornwall, to Hingham 
Mass., in 1635, thence to Boston in 1641, where he died in 
1650. His widow married George Hull of Fairfield, Conn. 
David was the son of Robert Phippen, who married 18 Sept., 
1580, Cecelie, daughter of Thomas Jordan of Dorset. 
Robert was of Melcomb and was the son of John Phippen of 
Weymouth in Dorset, who was the son of Henry Fitzpen of 
St. Mary Overv in Devon, said to be a descendant of John 
Pen, sheriff of London, in 1410, and who is probably the 
same person who represented Weymouth in Parliament in 
ld,13, 1120 and 1-122. Joseph and George, sons of David, 
therefore belonged to an ancient and honorable family and 
used and were entitled to coat armor, which may _ be de- 
scribed as follows : Argent, two bars sable, in chief, three 
escallops of the second. Crest, a griffin's head (see p. 9, 
vol. 4, Heraldic JotirnaJ). Joseph 1 married Dorcas Wood 
and removed to Falmouth where he bought 100 acres of 
land. He died at Salem, in 1687 ; of his sons, Joseph lived 
at Falmouth till 1676, when he removed to Salem, and 
David, also of Falmouth, who was killed by the Indians at 
that place about Aug. 10, 170o. 

George Phippen lived in Boston, Caseo Bay and Hull. 
His son James left descendants. His daughters were Fliza- 
beth, Mary, Ruth and another. He had also another son who 
may be the Andrew mentioned by Wheeler, whom I other- 
wise cannot place.

THE PARISH REGISTER OF STEWKLEY, 
CO. BUCKS, ENGLAND. 



CONTRIBUTED BY REV. R. BRUCE DICKSON, M.A., 
VICAR OF STEWKLEY. 



Copied from the original by Mr. A. F. Heintz, under the direction and at 

the cost of Mr. Dickson. 



The Stewkley Register (which is here printed) covers the 
following period : 

Baptisms, 1545-1653. 
Burials, 1599-1653. 
Marriages, 1599-1646. 



[Stewkley is about four miles west of Leighton Buzzard in 
Bedfordshire. At the time of the Doomesday survey there 
were three manors there. In the sixteenth century the most 
opulent family in that immediate vicinity were the Duncomhes, 
who perhaps came into possession of Stewkley as early as, if 
not earlier than, 1545. 

Thomas Duncombe was of Wingrave and may be he who 
died 3 Sept., 1548. 

He left sons Thomas of Whitchurch ; Richard of Aylesbury, 
who had Sccwkley ; Henry and Bennett. Richard Duncombe, 
son of Thomas, left an heir John, who held Stewkley in 1558. 
Soon after it passed from this family. 

John Fox, who was appointed vicar at Stewkley in 1545, 
has been identified by sonic historians as John Fox the mar- 
tyrologist, said to have been born in 1517. 

The Church is of the eleventh century and was once occupied 
by Cromwell's troopers during the civil war. No memorials 

(10)

prior to 1660 remain in the church. Many names common 
to New England occur on this register. It may be remarked 
that Nicholas Putnam, formerly of YVingrave, and father of 
John Putnam of Salem, Mass., was, at the time of his death, 
s resident of this parish. — Editoh.]

for Sept. and Oct., 1777, without remark, and on the roll 
for Nov., 1777, as " turned over to Capt. Gregory's Co., Dec. 
1, 1777. On the roil tor Dec, 1777, he is reported with

Capt. David Mason's Co. of the 11th Va. regiment in Gen'l 
Woodford's Brigade, commanded by Col. Buford from Dec 

1778, to Nov., 1779, without additional information. The 
roll for Nov., 1777, shows the designation of the organization 
to be the 5th and 11th Virginia regiment of Foot, commanded 
by Col. William Russell. 

Charles Stewart was a resident of Norfolk county, Vir- 
ginia, near the Dismal Swamp. I want to inquire if any of

ANSWERS. 

Reneau. In 1821 Lewis Reneau represented Sevier Co., 
Tenn., in the Tennessee House of Representatives ; was the 
only member who refused to vote for a resolution commend- 
ing Andrew Jackson to the country for President, giving his 
reasons on the Journal (1) none of the legislature's business ; 
(2) not binding on anybody; (3) too far ahead. 

This is undoubtedly the same stock as Pierre Renaud, who 
came to Manikin, Tenn., Sept., 1700. "Huguenot Emigra- 
tion to Va.," page 14. from Geneva, and see Vol. 3, " Genea- 
logical Notes of Genevan Families" (1836). J. A. Galifie,

MAIRE POINT PAPERS, NO. I. 



BY EBEN PUTNAM. 

I 

MAIRE OR MARE POINT, BRUNSWICK, CUMBERLAND CO., 

MAINE. 

{Continued from page 9.) 

George Phippen owned and lived upon what is now the 
Skolneld brothers' farms on Maire Point. The depression 
of the cellar may still be seen on the eastern side close to 
the shore and to a natural landing place. This location was 
that chosen by John Orr when he settled on the point. 
Phippen lived there till driven away by the Indians and tra- 
dition states that into his well was thrown the family plate. 
Years afterwards the story of his settlement and flight was 
told by Mr. Skolhcld in the family circle and the story of 
the silver repeated. A woman living in the family as a do- 
mestic determined to possess the silver. Providing herself 
with implements she began the tedious task of digging out 
the old well filled with stones and refuse. Long before she 
made any considerable progress she was so badly poisoned 
by the ivy which abounded that her life was nearly despaired 
of. It is needless to state she lost all interest in either the 
silver, or "mercury " in or about the old well. 

About 1714, it is supposed that one of the Pejepscot pro- 
prietors made out a list entitled "An Acc't of the Eastern 
Parts and of the several settlements that have ever been 
made on the lands formerly purchased by Mr. Wharton and 
now bought by eight of us." In this document is record- 
ed "but one settlement at Mair Point by John Phippany, 
but one settlement Maquoit by Robert Haines." This does 
not necessarily mean that Phippen and Haines then, in 1714, 
had settlements at those points. Both the christian names 
are wrongly given and White's name is entirely omitted. 

(37) 



38 MAIKE POINT PAPERS, NO. I. 

Other discrepancies occur in the list ; but the evidence is 
positive that George Phippcn lived for many years on the 
southeastern side of the point. See Eastern Claims. 

James Carter is said by Wheeler, to have been an inhabi- 
tant of Maire Point. 

[Richard Carter, who died previous to 1682, but was 
probably living at Westgustoggoe in 1672, on land adjoining 
John Mayne, left a widow Agnes, who in 1682 was aged 
about 82 and was then Agnes Maddiver, second wife of 
Michael of Falmouth, an early settler, whom she married 
prior to 1670, when Mr. Maddiver died (.Trelawny JPapers 
p. 324note) . He also left a son Richard, agedabout 37 in 1682. 
Richard Carter the younger, in various depositions gives his 
birth a* about 16#4-5; ond testifies regarding sale of lands 
by his father in 1652 to Richard Bray. Presumably this 
Richard is identical with the Richard of York in 1680 and 
of Kittery in 1695. See York Deeds IV, 11, 37 ; III, 115, 
etc. Joan Carter, widow, of Great Island (Portsmouth) 
in 1691, deeds land to son John Dimond, which was for- 
merlv her husband's William Desmonds. York Deeds V, 
67. But she was wife of Edward Carter in 1686. See J\ T . H. 
Province Bee. 1, 578. Richard Carter of Exeter 1643-5 of 
Dover 1665. {See do. 270-9.) Edward of Great Island 
in 1707. (do. Vol.11.)] 

Nicholas White was one of Winter's men at Cascoin 1639 
and had formerly been apprenticed to John Sparke from 
whom he went into Trelawny's service. He was fishing in 
1638, and in 1640 left Winter. He at one time owned a 
quarter part of House Island, which he sold in Oct., 1661, 
the deed being witnessed by John Sears. Wheeler states that 
he lived on White's Island, which was named from him. 
In Feb., 1714, Samuel White of Boston in the right of his 
grandfather, Nicholas White, late of Casco, claimed land "at 
a place called Mare Point, toward ye upper half of ye said 
point toward Maquoit, bounded betwixt a tract of land be- 
longing to John Sears on ye N. E. side and a tract of land 



MAIEE POINT PAPERS, NO. I. 39 

belonging to Henry Webb on ye southwest fronting one 
outside against Merriconeage Neck ranging across ye Neck 
of land called Mare Point over to ye Bay running up to Ma- 
qnoit against Maquoit . . . and also a piece of Meadow at a 
place called Sears Creek and another piece at ye head of ye 
Bay betwixt Mare Point and Merriconeage Neck and which 
parcell of land meadow said Nicholas White peaceably en- 
joyed and lived upon forty years ago and until drove off by 
the enemy as appears by a paper under ye hand of George 
Phippens and Elizabeth Phippens. Dated 20 Feb., 1702-3, 
and witnessed by Thomas Comes and Silvanus Davis." He 
further claimed Pulpit Island alias New Damaris Cove and 
land at Merriconeage Point as per evidences sworn to by 
Thomas Mitchell, 11 Aug., 1701, and Robert Nichols, 26 
July, 1701. Book of Eastern Claims. 

Nicholas White submitted to the Massachusetts Bay gov- 
ernment in 1658, and presumably at that time and until 
1677 he was a resident of Maire Point. But in 1673 John 
Sears in selling land to James Land bounds his land on 
Mare Point neck with land formerly in possession of 
Nicholas Why tt. On the 25 Nov., 1667, Nicholas White, 
then of Westgostoggoe, planter, sold to John Wallis of 
Casco, a plantation at Papoding. To this deed Daniel 
White gave his consent. Before Wallis had finished his 
payments on this purchase White had died and William 
Haynes, who married the widow Margery, gave receipts in 
1672 ( York Deeds 11, 181). Joel Maddiver, son of Michael 
mentioned above, and his wife Rebecca, were witnesses. 

Samuel White's claim was allowed, at least in part, as in 
1730 he owned 30 acres on the Point, between Wentworth's 
and Minot's property. This land was sold 13 Dec, 1744, 
by Benjamin Edwards and his wife Elizabeth, formerly 
Elizabeth AVhite, administratrix on the estate of her late 
husband, Samuel White, late of Boston, to John Minot of 
Boston, the tract bein£ described as that which was granted 
to Samuel White by the Proprietors of the Pejepscot Com- 



40 MAIRE POINT PAPERS, NO. I. 

pany (York Deeds 27, 114). The story of White's fifty 
acres is shown bv two deeds on record at Alfred, one by 
Samuel White to the proprietors in settlement of a dispute 
of fifty acres on Maire Point, the other to White from the 
proprietors, of fifty acres on Maire Point located as follows 
ft to lie on the Easterly side of a run of water which goes 
across Mair Point neck." These deeds are dated 12 May, 
1721 (.Book 23, 75). White's fifty acres is now comprised 
in the farm of Alexander Minot, Esq.

George, of Andover, a tailor, called "junior" on Andover 
records. He settled near George Abbott, Sr., only Sutton's 
farm dividing them. In 1657 he testified that he was about 
twenty-six years of age, born therefore about 1631. Remar- 
ried, at Andover, 26 April, 1658, Sarah Farnum. His death 
occurred 22 March, 1688-9, and on the Essex Probate records 
will be found an agreement between the heirs dividing his 
estate. After reciting the fact that at the time of his death 
R the government of the country was in an unsettled pos- 
ture," the widow and children who are of age, acknowledge 
their adherence to the division outlined below. The widow 
received £25 and one end of the house. George, eldest son, 
took 16 acres of land formerly given him by his father, and 
upon which he had erected a house in his father's lifetime, 
together with certain meadow and stock and household fur- 
niture. 

John, the second son, had the homestead aud orchard. Ne- 
hemiah, the third son, had residue of upland aud meadow, 
stock and furniture, and he and John agreed to pay shares of 
the other children, Sarah, Mary, Hannah, and Lydia, the lat- 
ter of whom chose Nehemiah as her guardian. Each to have 
£18. They were also to pay the youngest children, Samuel 
and Mehitable, whatever the court should order, which was 
£70 and £18, respectively. Henry In gal Is who had married 
the widow gave his consent to this deed as did also John 
Falkner, husband of Sarah, and Stephen Barker, husband of 
Mary .

w At a meeting of the Selectmen of Andover, y e 16 of y e 1 
mouth, 167 6 9 , we have agreed with George Abbot, drummer, 
to ring the bell at nine of the clock at night, as also to give 
notice by y e tovvlhig of the bell every night of y e day of the 
month, and his time of ringing to begin the time of ye in- 
stant March, which he is to doe, and to be payd for his labour 
thirty shillings by the yeare." 

It was the custom to beat the drum for the signal for ser- 
vice and daily labor, and none but a sober and industrious 
man could be chosen for such duties. 

It is a fair inference that his near neighbor George Abbott, 
Sr. , was a kinsman ; however, nothing positive is known about 
this. He is supposed to have gone to Andover in 1655.

11. Alice Craft, daughter of Samuel and granddaughter 
of Lieut. Griffin Craft was baptized in Roxbury 19 Feb., 
1681, "owned the Covenant" 1 March, 1702. She married 
(1) Robert Loverain at Roxbury, 3 Jany., 1704-5; (2) 
Ephraim Lyon, 4 July, 1723 ; (3) John Greenwood, 24 July, 
1729, of Newton; (4) James Shed of Roxbury 28 Sept., 
1743 in Newton; (5) John* Winchester of Brookline, 1750 
(probably), who died in 1751. 

Alice Winchester survived her fifth husband thirty-two 
rears, and died in Holliston, Mass., in 1783 in her 102d year, 
at Ihe house of her grandson Joseph Lovering. 

Samuel Craft, brother of Alice the last mentioned, who 
died in Brookline in 1771 aged 70, had a daughter Sarah 
Winchester in Ashburnham. 

Sahah Craft (Samuel, Samuel Griffin) born in Brookline 
al>out 1728; married in Brookline 5 May, 1748, Rev. Jona- 
than Winchester, son of Henry and Frances (White) Win- 
chester of Brookline. He was born there 21 April, 1717, was 
graduated from Harvard College 1737, and for several years 
waa a school teacher in Brookline, where thev dwelt for 
■bout ten years after their marriage. In Nov., 1759, he re- 
ceived a call to become the minister of the church at Ash- 
buruham, Mass., which he accepted and was ordained April 
'-'3, 1760, being the first pastor of the society. 

His death occurred Nov. 2b', 17G7, at the age of 50 years, 
Her a ministry of but seven years. 

"His widow," a lady of education and talent "continued to

the will of her father dated 2 Feb., 1770, she received all his 
property in Ashburnham, inventoried at £226, 13s. 4d. 
{See Crafts Genealogy.) 

Mr. Edward Augustus Bo wen, of Brooklyn, N. Y., a lineal 
descendant of Capt. John Winchester and Sarah White, states 
that Capt. John Winchester married, first, Sarah, daughter 
of Lieut. John and Elizabeth (Bowles) White, and sister of 
John White, Treasurer of Harvard College. {See Sibley's 
Harvard Graduates for John White. ) 

Sarah (White) Winchester born 1670 ; died Jan. 31, 1715. 

From John White's (Treasurer of Harvard College) es- 
tate, her children received £440, 2s. 6d, which was paid to 
their father as guardian. 

I should suppose that the Frances White, mentioned in 
query No. 11 must belong to the same family, for the gentle- 
man she married was Henry Winchester, brother of Capt. 
John Winchester, both of them sons of John Winchester and 
Joanna (Stevens) Winchester. I hope if any light is thrown 
on the Frances White, wife of Henry Winchester, and more 
facts are found about her and she is traced accurately, you 
will kindly send such facts to me, as I am a lineal descendant 
of the second John Winchester, father of Henry who married 
Frances White.

His 7th child was (Rev.) Samuel born April 22, 1670, set-

CHIEF JUSTICE CHRISTOPHER GALE AND CHIEF 
JUSTICE WILLIAM LITTLE, OF CAROLINA, AND 

THEIR DESCENDANTS. 



&T MRS. FLORENCE FARRINGTON, A DESCENDANT OF THE 10TII GENERA- 
TION FROM SIR JOHN GALE OF FARNLEY HALL, ENGLAND. 



The histories of these two men and that of their descend- 
ants are so interwoven that they are described together. 

John Gale, a descendant of the Gales of Scranton and 
Mashans, and Joanne Dobson, daughter of Miles Dobson of 
Kirkley, Overblow, Yorkshire, England, were the father 
and mother of Miles Gale, who was born at Farnley Hall, 
■tear Leeds, in 1647. 

Miles married Margaret, daughter of Christopher Stone, 
•ho was chancellor of York from 1660 to 1667. 

Miles Gale was a writer and an antiquarian. Among his 
6 



82 CHIEF JUSTICES GALE AND LITTLE AND DESCENDANTS. 

writings were "Memoirs of the Gale Family," particularly 
of the leaned Dr. Thomas Gale, Dean of York, and of his 
son Christopher, who was Her Majesty's attorney general in 
Carolina iu 1703. His works can be found in the libraries 
of Leeds and Cambridge, and his collection of relics can be 
seen in the museum at Cambridge. 

After his removal to Carolina, Christopher Gale made his 
home at Edenton, then a village of twenty houses, used 
mostly for business purposes, the residences or country seats 
of the gentlemen being located on either side of the Chawan 
river on which Edenton is situated. 

Christopher Gale married Sarah, the widow of Gov. 
Thomas Harvey, who had died in 1699. Of this marriage 
there were four children, Miles, Theophilus, Elizabeth and 
Penelope. 

In 1709 we find Gale serving as one of the eight Lords 
Proprietors' deputies. On September 7, 1711, Gale wit- 
nessed the massacre of the white settlers by the Tuscarora 
Indians, when a hundred and twelve persons lost their lives 
by tomahawk and in other barbarous ways. The account 
of this tragic event has been transmitted to posterity by a 
letter written by Gale, now iu possession of Professor Hub- 
bard of the University of North Carolina. 

In 1711, Gale was made chief j istice of the Carolinas and 
of the Bahama Islands. In 1724 Gale, owing to difficulties 
with the governor of the colony, who was endeavoring to eject 
him from otfice, visited England for the purpose of laying the 
matter of disagreement before the Lords Proprietors who re- 
fused to give place to the governor's favorite and rein- 
stated Gale as Chief Justice. In 1728, while still chief justice, 
Gale was made one of Gov. George Barri niton's council. 
In 1729, with Colonel Loverick and William Little he was 
appointed one of the commissioners to run the dividing line 
between Virginia and North Carolina. For that service Gale 
and Little were - each awarded a tract of four thousand acres 
of land of great value. Gale's tract near Halifax was called 



CHIEF JUSTICES GALE AND LITTLE AND DESCENDANTS. 83 

"Oconocha Neck," and Little's on the Soxpohon river was 
wiled " the Handfield " tract. The proprietors retroceded 
the sovereignty to the crown in 1729 and Gale returned to 
private life. He died in 1731 and lies buried in Edenton, 
and "left a name that is never mentioned but with respect." 

It was when Gale was in England in 1724, that he made 
the acquaintance of the before-mentioned William Little, a 
native of Boston, Mass., and a member of a prominent and 
wealthy family of that town, who had gone to England to 
complete his studies at the University of Cambridge. A warm 
friendship sprang up between these two gentlemen, and when 
Gale returned to America he induced not only his brother Ed- 
mund Gale, but William Little to join him. Through Gale's 
iiiiiuence, William Little received the appointments of attor- 
ney general, comptroller and receiver general of the King's 
quit rents, which offices he held successively until 1731, 
when he was appointed by the crown, chief justice of the 
Carolinas. 

In 1726, William Little married Penelope, the youngest 
daughter of Christopher Gale ; by her he had three children : 
Penelope, born July 28, 1727, William, born Sept. 27, 1729, 
George, born 1731. In 1734, Judge Little died, leaving all 
of his children quite young. After the English style his for- 
tune was given to his eldest son William, but he gave George, 
the younger son, a tract of land, "and bound him to the sea." 

Mr. Little's widow married, a second time, a Dr. Hardy, 
and had two more daughters, Sarah and Elizabeth. Sarah 
married a gentleman named Hurt, and Elizabeth mairied one 
named Bower. Elizabeth had two sons. After the death of 
Mr. Bower she mairied a man named Roberts. These peo- 
ple, the Gales (Christopher and Edmond), the Harveys, 
Bowerses and Robertses lived in or near Edenton, where 
they now have numerous descendants. 

Judge William Little's daughter, Penelope, married Mr. 
Kobert Baker, on Cape Fear river, and they had a son Sam- 
uel, and a daughter, but to whom she was married was not 
stated. Mrs. Baker died in 1816. 



84 CHIEF JUSTICES GALE AND LITTLE AND DESCENDANTS. 

William Little, the judge's eldest son, was wealthy, of 
fiiiO form, and moat agreeable manner; he married, first, a 
daughter of Galomon Kimbrough, and made his home at 
Cheraw, S. C. ; by this marriage he had a daughter named 
Sarah, and a son George. Mrs. Little died, and Mr. Little 
remained a widower for seven years ; then he married Cath- 
arine Stewart, a daughter of Sir Patrick Stewart, who was 
chief of the Stewart Clan of Balquheidder, Scotland. By this 
wife, Mr. Little had one child only, a daughter, named Eliz- 
abeth, who became the wife of Morgan Brown, Jan. 22, 1784. 
, Morgan Brown and his wife moved to Tennessee in 1795. 
Their descendants would number more than a hundred. Wil- 
liam Little died Dec, 1766. 

George Little, the youngest of the judge's two sons, made 
his home on his farm on the Mehesin river. He married 
Miss Parsons, the sister of Gen. Thomas Parsons, by whom 
ho had three children. The eldest, George, at fourteen years 
of age, was drowned in the Mehepin river, " in time of fish." 
The second son inherited the grr ,ter portion of General Par- 
sons' great fortune. William was a man of the highest re- 
spectability, and for many }^ears represented his district in 
congress. George Little had a daughter, who married Sharp 
Blount. They had children but their names are unknown to 
the writer. 

The late Col. George Little, of Kaleigh, who was also a 
member of congress, was a lineal descendant of Chief Justice 
Little. 

Sarah, the eldest daughter of Mr. Little, married William 
Thomas, Esq., the son of Philemon Thomas of Queen Anne 
Co., Maryland. They had a son named AVilliam Little 
Thomas. At twenty years of age he married Clarissa Benton, 
daughter of Col. Samuel Benton of Cheraw, district of South 
Carolina. Here ends the writer's knowledge of the descend- 
ants of Mr. William Little by his first wife Miss Kimbrough.

BY EBEN PUTNAM. 



John Adams was of Cambridge in 1650. On the 8th, 
Ifth month, 1657-8 he received a grant of 4 acres, 3 J rods 
in Menotomy field. In 1677, he, "of Menotomy Row," buys 
of Jonathan Bunker, 3 acres in Menotomy field, bounded 
fabt by Menotomy river and north by the Mystic river. 
He was a millwright. Freeman 1666, which year he joined, 
the church. He signed the petition of the 17th, 8 month, 
lOtU, testifying to the satisfaction the government of the 
Colony gave and praying that they " may not be subject- 
ed to the arbitrary power of any who are not chosen by 
this people according to their patent." This was a part of 
the opposition to the Royal Commission of that year. 

The John Adams, impressed as a trooper in Nov., 1675, 
*a* probably the son John, rather than the father. His name 
<Ws not appear on the Shawshin division of 1652. In 
1688 he was rated to pay tax that year of lOsh. 8 pence 
upon estate and two persons, which is exceeded by very 
f«W, and by none in Menotomy. Thomas Danforth, Esq., 
J* rated the heaviest and he only for 12 sh. one penny. 

That year polls were rated at lsh. 8d. each and estates at 
a penny in the pound, therefore he was assessed for £88 val- 
uation of estate. It is needless to say that the valuation 
w a* low. 

On the 4 Sept., 1697, he, and wife Ann, deeded to son 
•'oseph a certain tenement with lands in Cambridge and 

harlestown being part of the homestead and eight acres, 
■pon which was a mansion house. Also land at Menotomy 
bridge bounded by Charlestown bounds. Mdd. Deeds, 12,

Joseph Adams of Menotomy, son of Joseph (Joseph, 
John), born 3 July, 1715; died 3 May, 1794. He was a 
deacon in the second parish church and had the care of the 
church service. At the time of the retreat of the British 
from Lexington his house was looted by the British and the 
service taken. The thieves sold it to a Boston silversmith, 
from whom the church reclaimed it. (See Boston Sunday 
Herald of 2 August, 1885.) From the state archives it 
appears that the vessels, linen and cash belonging to the 
church of said precinct, taken out of the house of Joseph 
Adams, deacon of said church, amounts to £16-16-8.* 

The British piled up some furniture in the centre of a cham- 
ber whence they had driven Mrs. Adams, then with a babe of 18 
days, not even giving her time to dress or call the other chil- 
dren, and set the whole on fire, using as kindling the leaves 
of the family bible. But little damage was done as the fire 
did not kindle, a fact ascribed by the good deacon to the sac- 
rilegious use of the good book. This story I have often heard 
from my grandmother, Martha Adams (Tapley) Edmands, a 
great granddaughter of Deacon Joseph Adams. 

The deacon's name is not upon any of the military rolls of 
the day, but as he evidently was away from home, it is a fair 
iiuerence he w r as with his countrymen harassing the British 
retreat and found it impossible to reach his home and get his 
family to a place of safety. 

He was selectman of Cambridge 1758, 1769, 1770, 1771. 

* The estimated damage by the British that day was 

Cambridge, £1202- 8- 7 
Lexington, JG. 17*51— 1-15 
Concord, £ 274-16- 7 



Total, £3237-25-29 

The largest individual loss was that of Joseph Loring of Lexington, whose house 
*ad barn were totally destroyed. His loss was £720.

THE ORIGIN OF HERALDRY. 



FEOM A GUIDE TO THE STUDY OF HERALDRY.- 

MONTAGU, B.A. 



-BY J. A. 



(Continued from page 310, Vol. V.) 

I shall not enter upon the subject of the heralds' duties, 
their privileges, emoluments, etc. ; those who seek for mr- 
thf.T information upon the subject, I would refer to Mark No- 
Me's w History of the College of Arms," where they will iind 
notices of all the heralds, from the time of their incorporation 
to the reign of George the Third. 1 In recommending, how- 
ever, Mark Noble's work, I must caution the reader against 
his partiality ; his names and dates may be correct, but the 
character of some of the heralds he has strangely vilified* His 
.•thuse of Ralph Brook was not altogether merited ; Brook was 
••"arse in his language, it is true, but a most learned and 
acute genealogist and herald. His famous literary warfare 
with Camden has been of essential service to the genealogist. 
In Edmondson's " Complete Body of Heraldry," and Dalla- 
way's "Inquiry into the Origin of Heraldry," will also be 
found much information relative to heralds and their duties. 
i must not, however, omit some mention of one of the heralds' 
duties, as it is so immediately connected with the state of 
heraldry. I allude to the visitations. They were undertaken 
every twenty or thirty years, under a royal commission, for 
the purpose of registering and confirming the pedigrees and 
arms of the gentry throughout England. The earliest on rec- 
ord is, Visitalio facta per Marischallum de Norry ult. ann. 
"• Ilenrici 4 U 1412 ; 2 but this is not supposed to have been

under a royal commission. The first under such royal com- 
mission was that by Thomas Benoilt, Clarenceux, in 1528. 
These visitations, which were continued at intervals until 
the year 1686, were not merely matters of form and regis- 
tration of whatever genealogies and arms might be presented 
to the heralds, but in most cases there was a careful inquiry 
into the right of using such bearings, and proof required of 
the pedigrees so presented ; and in many instances those who 
had illegally assumed arms, or had forged pedigrees, were 
disclaimed openly in the market place as ignoble. 1 To those 
who are fond of genealogical research, Sir H. Nicolas's "Cat- 
alogue of the Heralds' Visitations in the British Museum," 
will be found exceedingly useful. It contains also many ref- 
erences to other manuscripts on genealogy and heraldry pre- 
served in that institution. 

The reigns of Henrv the Eighth 2 and Elizabeth were no 
less celebrated than those of Edward the Third and Richard 
the Second for pomp and pageantry and heraldic display; 
but heraldry no longer possessed that simplicity and purity 
which had distinguished it in the preceding reigns. The arm3 
that were granted in the time of Elizabeth were many of them 
of a complicated nature ; and they were now too frequently 
granted either through carelessness or for pecuniary rea- 
sons, to unworthy persons. This is the more to be con- 
demned, as the emoluments of the heralds were at this time 
.very great, in consequence of the love of pageantry and dis- 
play evinced by the monarchs above mentioned. Another 
cause which tended to bring heraldry into disrepute arose 
from a number of adventurers who went about the country, 
falsely calling themselves heralds, and made money by grant- 
ing arms and manufacturing pedigrees. A memorable instance 
of this kind of " notable dealers in arms and makers of false 
pedigrees " was one W. Dawkins ; he was apprehended by

order of the Earl Marshal. The names of nearly one hundred 
families were mentioned, for whom he had compiled spurious 
pedigrees. He had been twice before apprehended for the 
same offence ; at one time being punished by the loss of an 
ear, and the other by imprisonment. 

The vast number of manuscripts of heraldry still in exist- 
ence, which were compiled about this time, evince the indus- 
try of at least some of the heralds, notwithstanding their in- 
ternal dissensions. 

Little more need be said ; nothing of any moment affected 
the science of heraldry under the houses of Stuart aud Han- 
over, and it gradually declined in estimation. With the dis- 
continuance of the tournament and the joust, and the altered 
system of warfare, heraldry lost a great part of its conse- 
quence. None of our kings since James the Second ever kept 
up much state ; and the inroad of a number of persons who 
could afford to purchase arms, lessened, in a great measure, 
the estimation in which heraldic distinctions were held. 

It is a little curious that, during the usurpation of Crom- 
well, the heraldic body still held its place, w r hen most institu- 
tions of a similar nature fell to the ground. We find Oliver 
with his heralds occasionally about him, and as fond of mag- 
nificence as jxuy legitimate crowned head ; in proof of this, 
look at his reception of the Dutch ambassadors, and his sol- 
emnization of the funerals of his mother and daughter. Crom- 
well caused the arms of the Protectorate to be substituted for 
those of the exiled Stuarts ; and for his own coat he bore the 
arms of Cromwell as an escutcheon of pretence over a modifi- 
cation of the arms of the Protectorate. 

It is now necessary that I should mention the sources from 
which my readers may gather information upon the subject 

• 

in question ; and also that I should so guide their steps in 
their search for it, as to lead them through the richest fields, 
and those which are the freest from weeds, at the same 
time without wearying them with the length of the way. Al- 
though I feel with Dallaway that, " to enliven a catalogue is 



104 THE ORIGIN OF HERALDRY. 

one of those literary felicities to which I do not expect to at- 
tain," yet it is a necessary task, and may prove, perhaps, the 
most useful part of this short essay. 

I will at once, then, suppose the reader perfectly ignorant 
of heraldry, and put into his hands works which will enable 
him to convert the jargon of the science into the illuminated 
coat. I do not think I can offer him better assistance than 
he will find in such small works as Clark's "Introduction to 
Heraldry," or better still (if he can procure it), Claude Men- 
estrier's "Veritable Art du Blazon," published at Lyons in 
1671. I have been particular here in the date, as there are 
three works by Menestrier, under the general title of "Le 
Veritable Art du Blazon :" one on the Origin of Arms, an- 
other on the Method of Blazoning (that above mentioned), 
and a third on the Usage of Arms. I may take this oppor- 
tunity of stating, that all Menestrier's works, of which there 
are a great number, will be found of the very best service. 
Dictionaries of heraldic terms, and their meanings, are easily 
to be had ; s*:ch are found in Edmondson's "Complete Body 
of Heraldry," and Gnillim's "Display of Heraldry." Gelliot's 
" Indice Armorial " is also a useful work. I might here al- 
most conclude my notice of heraldic books, by at once re- 
ferring the reader to Monle's "Bibliotheca Heraldica," a work 
though apparently a mere catalogue of books, of much labour, 
and great and careful research. It gives the titles in full of 
nearly every work that has been printed in England connect- 
ed with heraldry, genealogy, coronations, etc., with a detailed 
account of the contents of each, and remarks by which one 
may judge of their merits. More than eight hundred books 
are mentioned, beginning with a work relating to the Order 
of the Garter, printed in the year 14G9, and supposed to be 
Caxton's second attempt at printing; and ending with Wille- 
ment's "Regal Heraldry," published in 1821. At the end 
there is a list of the Heralds' Visitations, 1 with references to 

iThc dates are occasionally erroneous, but it is almost impossible to fix them with 
certainty. 



SF> 



THE ORIGIN OF HERALDRY. 105 

the principal manuscripts connected with the genealogies, etc., 
of the several counties, contained in private collections. The 
notices of foreign genealogies are very numerous, 1 and any 
one who can meet with a tenth part of those mentioned may 
consider himself exceedingly fortunate. There is also a list 
of some foreign systems of heraldry, but this part of the work 
is incomplete ; to supply in part this defect, I may mention, 
among German authors, George Philip Harsdorfer, of Nurem- 
berg, who was the first German who wrote on heraldry ; The- 
odore Hopingk, John Limnaus, and upwards of twenty 
others. But it is to Philip Jacob Spener, who wrote at the 
end of the seventeenth century, that the Germans are in- 
debted for their best work on the subject ; from his " Insig- 
liiuni Theoria seu Operis Heraldiei," most of the other writers 
have taken their information. 

Amongst Italian writers there are, Philibert Campanile, 
whose work "Dell' Armi," etc., may be consulted; Antonio 
Stephano Catari, Paul Jovius, Der Graf Marc Ant. Ginani, 
and some others. 

For Spanish authors the reader may refer to Gerhard us 
Frankeuau's "Bibliotheca-Hispanica Historico-Genealogico- 
Ileraklica," which contains the names of seven hundred auth- 
ors, and titles of one thousand four hundred and ninety works 
upon these subjects. 

In the Netherlands, they have had John Lavens, Thomas 
de Rouck, and John Christyn. 

The Swedes too can name John Ihre and Carl Uggla, as 
writers upon heraldry. 

But what is of most importance to the heraldic student, 
and that which will alone give interest to the science, and 
render it of service in the study of history, are good authori- 
ties for armorial bearings. For such, one of the most obvious 
sources (after seals) will be the original note books of the 
heralds in their visitations. Of these many are, of course, in 
the College of Arms, and many again scattered about in pri- 

*The list of foreign genealogies contains about three hundred works.

vate collections ; these will be for the most part inaccessible. 
But in the Harleian collection of manuscripts in the British 
Museum there are upwards of two hundred of these visitations. 
In referring to them, the little work by Sir H. Nicolas, before 
mentioned, will be very serviceable. A vast number of other 
manuscripts of arms, by such men as Glover, Camden, Yin- 
cent, Segar, whose names stamp them with authority, will be 
found in the Harleian collection ; the excellent catalogue to 
which will be found of easy reference. Amongst the Lans- 
down, Hargrave,and Cotton manuscripts in the British Mu- 
seum many heraldic collections also exist. Among these 
manuscripts there are many of arms from tomb-stones, mural 
monuments, etc., in various churches throughout England. 
These are very valuable authorities.

PATRONYM AND ORIGIN OF THE GOLD- 

THWAITE FAMILY. 



BY ROBERT GOLDTHWAITE CARTER, U. S. ARMY, 

WASHINGTON, D. 0. 



The name — Goldthwaite — is from Scandinavian gol, Sclay 
gola, a wood, and thveit, a clearing — a wood clearing. Thomas 
de Goldthvvait would be, therefore, Thomas of the Wood-clear- 
ing. By dropping the "de," the name — although spelled in more 
than twenty ways, as Gowthwaitc, Goldthatc, Gouldth- 
waight, Goldthright, Gouldthait, etc., etc., — finally became 
Goldthwait, and continued thus for many years after the fam- 
ily had become firmly established in this country. But by the 
addition of a terminal "e" it is now universally known in the 
United States as Goldthwaite. The emigrant ancestor was 
Thomas, 1 and the first official mention of his name is in the 
Mass. Colonial Records, Juno 14, 1631. He is there spoken 
of as Thomas Goilthayt. 

There is but little doubt that he came from Yorkshire, 
England, and it is safe to assert that the family of Gold- 
thwaite had its origin at or near Pateley Bridge, Nidderdale 
District, or the valley of the Nidd, York Co., England. 

Several Goldthwaites are buried in the old churchyard at 
Pateley Bridge, and the old wills of the family thus far found 
point with great positiveness to the writer's assertion as to 
their origin. They were probably of Norman descent. In 
" Nidderdale and the Garden of the Nidd, a Yorkshire Rhine- 
land," by Harry Speight, the well-known English author, is 
an intensely interesting and exceedingly valuable descriptioL 
of the beautiful Nidd Valley and all that surrounds and at- 
taches to Pateley Bridge and Gowthwaite Hall, the ancient 
home of our Goldthwaite ancestors; and the following is 

(124) 



PATRONYM AND ORIGIN OF THE GOLDTHWAITE FAMILY. 125 

Ur^ely a transcript and re-arrangement from the text of this 
charming work — almost in the language of the author — -with 
gome observations by the writer pertinent to the subject. 
Extracts from wills were furnished by Miss Charlotte Gcld- 
thwaite, Hartford, Conn., and the churchyard inscriptions at 
Tateley Bridge, through the kind and thoughtful considera- 
tion of Mr. Oliver C. Goldthwait, Carshalton, Surrey, Eng., 
who, strange to say, is perhaps the only living descendant 
bearing the name now livimr in England, and he is known to 
have come from American stock. 

Early in the twelfth century the whole of Nidderdale ex- 
cepting Bishopside (in the hands of the Archbishops of York), 
was in possession of the great Baron Roger de Mowbray. He 
ami his grantees bestowed it upon the newly founded monas- 
tery of Fountains and the house of the Baron's foundation at 
Byland. The former held Brimham, Hartwith-cum-Winsley, 
Dacre, Bewerley, and the extensive township of Fountains 
Earth. While to Byland Abbey belonged, with a few res- 
ervations, the Forest of Nidderdale, comprised by the town- 
ibips of Stonebeck Up and Stonebeck Down, extending from 
Bewerley along the west side of the valley northwards 
through Ramsgill and Middlesmoor, to where "heaven water 

• illcth," between Wharfe and Nidd, and eastward to the 
junction with the lands of Fountains Earth, and the south- 
western boundary of the Parish of Masham-Bishopside was 
included within the Liberty of St. Wilfred of Ripon, but the 
Archbishops of York retained all proprietary rights as man- 
or lords, claiming all royalties, etc. When the name of 

* atcley Bridge was first given to this place is not ascertained, 
tat it is so written, with variations, in the early Mowbray 
Kaplers. Of its antiquity there is no doubt, but the name 
toes not appear in written records until the bridge was built 
,j n the site of the old Norman (Roman) ford. 

1 hough always asserted to have been derived from Pate, a 
Provincial name for the badger (an animal once very common 
■* the Yorkshire dales), there is just a suspicion that the 






126 PATKONYM AND ORIGIN OF THE GOLDTHWAITE FAMILY. 

origin of the word is to be found in JPata, an eastern won] 
signifying a city or fortified place. In the oldest deeds met 
with, the place is variously written Pathlay, Patalay, Paella, 
Padely, Pathelai, Petla, Petala, Patli, etc. 

Passing Pateley Bridge, just to the north is "the pictur- 
esque district of Stonebeck Down ;" this township extending 
from the Merryfield Beck on the south to How Stean on the 
north. The first object of note met with on leaving Heath- 
field, is Gowthwaite Hall, an interesting Elizabethan manor 
house, built by the family of Yorke, who long resided here, 
before Bewerley became their home. The house stands on or 
near the site of a still older homestead, occupied in the Nor- 
man centuries by a family named Goldthwaite or Gowthwaite, 
who probably derived their patronym from this place. In 1456 
Thomas Golthate kept the Abbot of Fountains' sheep at Da- 
cre. In 1480 John Golthate was the keeper of the lodge at 
Eastholme, and Robert Golthate, a descendant of this family, 
was a freeholder living at Pateley bridge in the middle of 
the last century. The old grange at Hayshaw, belonging to 
Fountains' Abbey, was pulled down long ago. At the sup- 
pression it was held in moieties by the family of Gill and 
Goldwathe, or Goldthwaite, the latter doubtless deriving its 
name from Golthwaite or Gowthwaite, in the township of 
Stonebeck Down near Pateley Bridge.

(1.) His family, no doubt, derived their name from 
Golthwaite or Gowthwaite, in Hyye field forest, on the west 
Hide of Nidderdale, a place which had been essorted by the 
monks of Byland, and where the Yorkes built about the time 
of Queen Elizabeth, a picturesque mansion, of which a view 
may be seen in the second volume of Dr. Whitaker's Rieh- 
mondshire. In 1456, William Colgv/ate or Golthwate held 
the onerous office of cook at Fountains Abbey with 20s. 
wages. At the same time Thomas Golthwat kept the Ab- 
Ms sheep at Dacre. In 1480 John Goldthwaite was the 
keeper of the lodge of Esatholme house, and Robert Golth- 
waite of a part of new house. In 1481 was engaged with 
Richard Atkynson and John Myrre in the same service of 
Hay shay, but in the next year he was sole Keeper, as he re- 
mained in 1496 — when his tenure was, " f ad voluntatem dom- 
mi —and he was bound to keep of the Abbot's store sixty 
cows and two bulls, and to return of the profits of the vaccary, 
yearly, eighty stones of cheese, forty stones of butter, and 
thirty shikets (strikets(?)). Also to keep two hundred

sheep from Michaelmas to the 3 d of May — the maintenance 
of which was to be worth 13s, 4d. — the return amounting to 
£11, 6s, 8d. The family long retained a respectable position 
in Nidderdale, and Francis Gowthwaite of Pateley Bridge, 
was a Freeholder there, a little more than a century ago."

MAIRE OR MARE POINT, BRUNSWICK, CUMBERLAND CO., 

MAINE. 

{Continued from page 40.) 

It is evident that Thomas Reading or Reddan, was not a 
resident at the Point ; but, from the above deed of Sears, he is 
shown to have owned land atMaire Point and elsewhere about 
the Bay. He was of Saco in 1G53. He died in 1G73 and left 
a widow Eleanor who, in 1673-4, 10 March, mortgaged to 
James Andrews of Falmouth, the lands of Thomas Redding 
in order to pay a mortgage given by said Thomas dated 
1672, to John Sands, shopkeeper, of Boston. This was wit- 
nessed by James Lane. In 1680 she mortgages this same 
property, 200 acres bounded on land of James Lane to the 
eastward, to Mary Atwater, alias Higginson, the relict and 
executrix of Joshua Atwater, late of Boston, merchant. This 
deed was made at Salem. 

John Redding of Way mouth, John Taylor of Boston and 
Joseph Donell of Casco Bay, and Ruth his wife, release the 
above to Mary Higginson, alias Atwater, widow, 1680. 

Note. Willis, Vol. I, Me. Hist. Soc. Col., p. 209, states that Henry Donuell from 
York married a daughter of Thomas Reading, an early settler at Saco. who afterward 
settled in Casco Bay. Henry Donuell had sons Henry and Samuel, of York. 

John Reding of Gloucester, fisherman, son and heir of 
Thomas Reding, formerly of Casco Bay, deceased, sells to Phil- 
emon Warner of Gloucester, blacksmith, 100 A. of land and 
20 A. of marsh which Thomas Redding bought of Stephen

[There is no known connection between the Riddan or 
Reading family of Casco Bay, and Lynn or Marblehead, yet 
such is very likely the case, and therefore a short account of 
the Marblehead family is inserted here as a help to any future 
investigator. 

Thaddeus Riddan, of Lynn, born about 1624; died in 
Marblehead 6 Jan., 1690-1. He was aged 60 in 1684. His 
wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Daniel King, Sr., and Eliza-

29. Kimballs of York Co., Me. Any information 
that will throw any light on the origin of this family will be 
very thankfully received by me. The facts so far as I have 
been able to ascertain them are as follows : Very earty in 
the 18th century two Kimball families are found in the 
County; these were, to give them in order of appearance on 
the Records, the families of Caleb and Thomas Kimball. The 
first mention of Caleb that has been found is his marriage, as 
follows : Caleb Kimball of Wells, Me., and Susanna Cloyes 
were married June 15, 1704. Susanna was probably daugh- 
ter of Nathaniel Cloyes of Wells. No record of their children 
has been found on the town books, but the following list is 
from the church records : 

i. Nathaniel, baptized Sept. 9, 1705. He is wrongly 
given on the record as son of Nathaniel Kimball. The 
county records however show that he was the son of Caleb. 
He married April 7, 1726, Abigail Couzens. 

ii. Richard, baptized March 25, 1706-7 ; married Cath- 
erine Couzens; married, second, Hannah Lord. Left de- 
scendants. 

iii. Caleb, baptized May 22, 1709; married Sept. 29, 
1-38, Beriah Welsh. 

iv. Susanna, baptized March 4, 1710; married (ints. 
July 27, 1733) Shadrick Watson. 

v. Mary, baptized May 16, 1714. 



132 QUERIES. 

vi. Joshua, baptized May 4, 1718; married June 12, 
1742, Sarah Thompson. He went on the expedition to Capo 
Breton and died there. 

vii. Samuel, baptized April 10, 1720. 

viii. Benjamin, baptized Aug. 6, 1721 ; married Feb. 17, 
1742-3, Lydia Morrison. 

This Caleb and his sons were early settlers of the part of 
Wells that is now Kennebunk and the Falls at Kennebunk 
were owned in part by them for many years. Their descend- 
ants are very numerous. 

The second family in the county was that of Thomas Kim- 
ball. The first notice of him appears on the court records on 
account of his not having been married as soon as he should 
have been. On the town records of York the following 
children of Thomas Kimball and Bethia Bragdon are sjiven : 

i. Thomas, born Nov. 28, 1710. He married Mary Good- 
win, and moved to Wells about 1739; left a number of 
children. 

ii. Abigail, born Dec. 29, 1713. 

Bethia married, second, Charles White of York. 

The question arises were Caleb and Thomas brothers, and 
if so whose sons were they. Were they sons of the Thomas 
Kimball who had a public house in Wells in 1690? If so, 
who was this Thomas? Was he a grandson of Richard of 
Ipswich ? The grandchildren of Richard have almost without 
exception been traced. Thomas, the son of Thomas of Brad- 
ford, lived in Bradford all his life and the record in regard 
to him is full and complete. The family of Henry Kimball 
of Wenham is all accounted for except his son Benjamin. In 
the Wells family there is no mention of the name of Henry. 

In an agreement made between the children of Richard 
Kimball of Wenham and his widow it is shown that he had 
ei^ht children. We have the names of seven of these and can 
account for their movements. He had a son Thomas, who 
lived in Wenham and left a will in which his children are 
named. The records of the remaining sons of Richard 1 of 
Ipswich are very full. I will willingly give a copy of the 
Kimball family to any one who will solve this problem.

THE ORIGIN OF HERALDRY. 



FROM A GUIDE TO THE STUDY OF HERALDRY. BY J. A. 

MONTAGU, B.A. 



(Continued from page 106.} 

The publication of contemporary Rolls of Arms offers us 
Another source which we may rely upon for correct armorial 
bearings. Four of these Rolls, or Collection of Arms, were 

ibUshed a few years ago by Sir H. Nicolas, accompanied 
by some excellent notes and introductory remarks. They 
consist of: — 

First. A roll of arms which, from its internal evidence, 
ibly commented upon by the editor, is undoubtedly of as 
early a date as Henry the Third, and was probabty compiled 
between the years 1240 and 1245. The existence of the 
original roll is not known, the present publication being taken 
from a copy made by Robert Glover, Somerset Herald, be- 
tween 1571 and 1588, whose reputation for correctness is 
well known. He states it to have been "an old roll of arms 
minh and written in the reign or time of Henry the Third." 
It contains the names and arms of about two hundred and 
twenty of the principal landholders in England at that time. 
This is the earliest authentic collection of arms known, and 
n of the highest value to the lover of heraldry. Mr. Dal la way 
mentions a roll of arms of the time of Henry the Third, of 
Ibe date 1220, but he is in error as to the date. The one he 
refers to is that of Edward the Second, mentioned hereafter. 

Second. The Roll of Carlaverock, a poem written it is 
•-apposed by Walter of Exeter, a Franciscan friar, detailing 
we siege of a celebrated fortress in Scotland. It contains 
U»e accurate blazon of the arms of one hundred and five 
lights and bannerets of the time of Edward the First. Of 
fa antiquity, the editor's remarks in the preface, the certifi- 
^te of the transcriber, Robert Glover, Somerset Herald, and 
ll ** internal evidence, afford pretty conclusive proof. Once 
la ti$fied of its authenticity, this poem affords us one of the 

(133) 



134 THE ORIGIN OF HERALDRY. 

best authorities we possess of the bearings of the person- 
therein mentioned. The correctness of the author is in nearly 
every instance confirmed by a comparison of the arms given 
in a nearly contemporary roll in the Cott. Bibl. Mus. Brit. 
Calig. A. xviii, and the seals attached to the Barons' cele- 
brated letter to the Pope in 1301. 

Third. A roll of arms of the time of Edward the Second, 
made between the second and seventh years of that king- 
reign [1308-1314]. The evidences for this date are excel- 
lently set forth by the editor in the preface from a careful re- 
view of the contents of the roll. This is printed from the 
original manuscript in the Cottonian Library in the British 
Museum, marked Caligula A. xviii. It is divided into coun- 
ties, and contains the names and arms of about one thousand 
one hundred and sixty-five persons. The estimation in which 
this roll has been held, as au authority for arms, will be ap- 
parent (when we consider the little general interest the sub- 
ject has) from this being the fourth time it has been printed. 
This edition of Sir H. Nicolas will, however, hold the first 
place, from the very valuable ordinary of the arms contained 
in the roll, which is printed with it. 1 A facsimile of the 
handwriting of the roll is given, which forms no slight ad- 
dition to the evidence of its antiquity. 

Fourth. A roll of arms compiled in the reign of Edward 
the Third, and apparently between the yearsf 1337 and 1350. 
It contains the names and arms of nearly six hundred persons 
who were living at that period, and is written in the form of 
an ordinary. It is printed from a copy in the College ot 
Arms, transcribed from the original in 1562 by Hugh Cot- 
grave, then Rouge-Croix Pursuivant, afterwards Richmond 
Herald. Nearly the same observations apply to this roll as 
were made upon that of Edward the Second. It may be re- 
ceived as a compilation of the time stated, and forms a valu- 
able additiou to our authorities for arms. 

Mr. Willement, the author of" Regal Heraldry," published 

i 

1 For this addition the editor tells us he is indebted to his friend Joseph Gwilt, Esq- 



THE ORIGIN OF HERALDRY. 135 

in 1834 a Roll of Arms of the time of Richard the Second, 
compiled between the years 1392 and 1397. It contains 
about six hundred names. Mr. Willement also published a 
few years since a work entitled "Heraldic Notices of Canter- 
bury Cathedral," describing the arms, above eight hundred in 
number, so profusely scattered over that magnificent building. 
The numerous notes which accompany the blazon of the arms 
are of great interest, and evince much genealogical learning 
and research. B} r the industry of the same author we are 
also put in possession of a facsimile of a "Roll of Arms of the 
spiritual and temporal Peers who sat in Parliament held at 
Westminster 5 Feb. sixth of Henry VIII. A. D. 1515." It 
is curious as showing the style ot heraldic illumination of the 
time. 1 

The following references to some other rolls of arms may 
be found useful : — 

Mr. Rowe Mores printed the arms in blazon of those who 
were with Edward the Third at the siege of Calais (most 
probably either from the copy existing in the Ashmolean Col- 
lection, Oxford, or from that in Cott. MS. Tiberius E. 9). 

Nicholas Charles, Lancaster Herald, in the beginning of 
the seventeenth century, w r as very industrious in the collec- 
tion of old rolls of arms and church notes. Those that follow, 
collected by him, are in Harl. MS. 658$. 

1. A Roll of Arms of the time of Henry the Third, w r ith 
this note, "This Roll on the other side was copied by the 
original which Mr. Norry lent me An Dm. 1607," signed 
Nicholas Charles. About six hundred and eighty coats. 

2. " A copy of a very ancient role of wrought in coulours 
in parchement, in the time of King Edward y e First, remain- 
*ng in the custody of Mr. John Guiiiams Portesrnouth, who 
lent me the original," signed Nich. Charles. In number about 
one hundred and fifty. r 

'Beautiful specimens of heraldic Illuminations are :— " Knights of the Order of 
U»e Saint Esprit," Harl. MS. 4037, and " Knights of the Golden Fleece," Harl. MS 
C1W.

3. " Ceux sont les Grantz Seigneurs a banniere que le Roy 
Edouard Premier puis le conquest avait per divers escose. 
L'an de son reigne xxvi eme . a la Bataille de Fawkyrke a jour 
de Sainte Marie Magdalen." 

w This Roll was brought from Paris in France by Andrew 
Thuet, Cosmographer, and was taken out of the treasury 
chamber at the palace in Paris aforesaid, where the records 
are kept, in the year 1576. At Paris the 10 of Sept." signed 
N. Charles, 1606. One hundred and twelve coats. 

In the same volume are : — 

Arms of those who were at the tournament at Dunstable, 
second of Edward the Second. 

Those who were at the siege of Calais. 

The Roll of Carlaveiock, and several other collections of a 
similar nature. 

In the Ashmole MS. No. 731, Oxford, is a Roll entitled 
"Les Noms et Armes de gentz mortz a Borge-brigge [Bor- 
oughbridge] le marsdye et le merkedyapres le teste St. Gre- 
goire Tan du regne le Roy Edvard hlz du Roy Edvard, 
quinzieme, et furent counter le roi, Bannerets priz a Borge- 
brigge et ailleurs en mesme cet temps — et ceux furent treyney 
et pcnduz." 

Some others will be found in the same collection. 

Many ancient Rolls of Arms, such as those above de- 
scribed, no doubt exist in private collections, and it is to be 
regretted that the possessors do not make them common 
property by publication. 

As instances of the authenticity of some of these Rolls, de- 
duced from internal evidence, I may mention the following : — 

In the poem of the Siege of Carlaverock, occurs the name 
of Hugh Bardolf, whose arms are there given, " Azure three 
cinquefeules or." This Hugh died in 1304, leaving two sons, 
Thomas, his heir, and William v . Now in the Roll of Arms 
compiled between 1308 and 1314 no Hugh de Bardolf occurs ; 
but we find Thomas de Bardolf bearing the same arms as those 
here given, and a William de Bardolf with the cinquefoils 



THE ORIGIN OF HERALDRY. 137 

urgent; a common method of differencing arms by a younger 

son. 1 

Henry Grey, in the poem, bears barry of six argent and 
azure. He died in 1308, leaving two sons, Richard and Nich- 
olas. In the Roll of Edward the Second, of seven Greys 
mentioned, there is not one named Henry ; but we find Rich- 
ard Grey, to whom are ascribed the same arms as those in 
the poem ; and Nicholas Grey the same arms with a bend 
gobonny or and gules. None of the other Greys in the Roll 
hear the plain arms without a difference. Immediately fol- 
lowing the Richard above mentioned, is the name of John de 
Grey, bearing the same arms as Richard with a label, the 
usual difference of the eldest son. This Richard had a son 
named John, who was afterwards one of the founders of the 
Order of the Garter.

■A berth was formerly called a cabin. 



138 EMIGRATION IN 1753. 

Secondly 

TLe said Messrs Isaac and Zachary Hope are to victual the 
ship with every good Provisions, vizt Good Bread, Beef, 
Bacon, Flour, Rice, Barly, Pease, syrup, Butter, Cheese, 
Beer, good fresh Water, and other necessaries ; The ship is to 
be purified twice a Day with Vinegar and Juniper Berries to 
cause fresh Air, and every whole Freight shall daily receive 
as follows : 

Sundays, One Pound of Beef boiled with Rice. 

Mondays, Barly and Syrup 

Tuesdays, One Pound of Flour of Wheat 

Wednesdays, One Pound of Bacon with Pease 

Thursdays, One Pound of Beef boiled with Rice 

Fridays, One Pound of Flour of Wheat, and one Pound of 
Butter. 

Saturdays, One Pound of Bacon, one Pound of Cheese, 
and six Pounds of Bread for the whole Week. 

Every Day one Quart of Beer (as long as it remains drink- 
able) and two Quarts of Water for every whole Freight. 

Whoever desires Brandy shall receive the same every morn- 
ing, and such as love Tobacco shall have one Pound for their 
Journey at their setting out. 

Thirdly 

The under- written Passengers shall have Liberty (in Time 
of fair weather) to dress Victuals for themselves and their 
little children, and for that Purpose to make use of the Fire 
from six o'clock in the morning to six at Ni^ht, and to be on 
Deck ; such as are sick shall especially be entitled to have 
the Use of Fire and Water as often as they desire it ; all sorts 
of Spices and Wine shall be put on Board the Ship to be used 
for their Refreshment, in order to take the better care of the 
Sick. 

On the other Hand Promise we the underwritten Passen- 
gers, to pay to Messrs Isaac and Zachary Hope in Rotterdam, 
or Order, for the Transport of our Person, Baggage, and 
Houshold Goods, from Rotterdam to Philadelphia and Pen- 



EMIGRATION IN 1753. 139 

silvania the sum of Seven and an Half Spanish Pistoles ; that 

jg to say, for every Whole Freight, and all our Goods shall 

. ... . . ... 

be put ashore and delivered to us, without our being obliged 
to pay any Thing on that Account to the Ship's Crew. 

Freights are to be judged in the following Manner : Chil- 
ren under four Years pay nothing, those of four Years to 
Fourteen pay half the sum above mentioned, and such as are 
fourteen and upwards the whole Freight. 

In case any Body should be willing to transport us alto- 
gether at a less Price, the said Messrs Isaac and Zachary 
Hope, engage themselves to do the same, unless it should 
evidently appear that such an Offer is made with no other 
View than to vex the said Messrs Isaac and Zachary Hope, in 
which Case they propose to give up the Contract, provided 
the Person that offers to transport the Passengers at a cheaper 
Rate, makes good to Messrs Isaac and Zachary Hope the ex- 
penses they have been at before the People were brought 
together. 

We promise on both sides Sincerity to fulfil the foregoing 
Articles, engaging our Persons and Goods for the Perform- 
ance of this Agreement signed with our own Hands. 
Done at 

I. C. Sprung, 

Commissary from Rotterdam. 
P. S. 

We give Notice, that without prejudicing others, we have 
this Year in some Points made an Alteration in our Contract : 
the Reason why and in What Manner the same is mended is, 
that new Merchants, who never before were engaged in trans- 
porting of People have ordered the Contract to be drawn up. 

In what Manner the Amendment is made, will appear by 
the following : 

Forasmuch we old merchants, who have caused People to 
be transported these twenty yeavs and upwards, have found 
hy Experience that Bacon and Flesh is very much salted, 
which is the Occasion of Scurvy and other Diseases ; and for 



140 EMIGRATION IN 1753. 

\ 

as much We Know, that the Germans are brought up more 
to the use of fresh Provisions than Salt-Meat, We therefore 
are willing to let our Passengers have two or three Times per 
week fresh Provisions, which will depend from every one's 
Choice. 

This is the Agreement according to what every Body is 
treated on Board the Ship that is to transport him. 

Whoever therefore is willing, of his own accord, with the 
Consent of his Superiors, to go to this new Country, may be 
assured, that he will be then at full Liberty, free from all 
Taxes for ever. Such as are inclined to repair thither, may 
apply to the above said Commissary I. C. Sprung who is ar- 
rived from Holland and impowered by Messrs Isaac and 
Zachary Hope, Merchants in Rotterdam, to engage some Hun- 
dreds of People, and to conduct them, with the Pressings of 
God, next Year to Pensilvania. They may apply to him at 
Heilbron at

A brief sketch of Thomas Fuller and his descendants, with 
historical notes by J. F. Fuller, Appleton, Wis., 1896. This 
little book of 47 pages is practically the ancestral line of 
Mr. Fuller, but so arranged as to be of value to any Fuller

descended from Thomas of Woburn and Salem, a fairly com- 
plete Catalogue of his descendants for three or four generations 
l>ein°- given. The parentage of Thomas the first is unknown, 
and no early instance of the use of the coat of arms, shown in 
the book, is quoted by the author, who merely says, " these 
amis have been long in the family." 

History of the Town of Manchester, Mass., 1645-1895, by 
Rev. D. F. Lamson. Published by the Town. 8vo, cloth, 
pp. 425. 

This history is rather a collection of interesting and truth- 
ful sketches in the life of the town. The very reading of the 
account of a Puritan Sabbath, in the appendix, leaves a 
peaceful, soothing impression, upon one. But wc fear Dr. 
Lunson has not studied the court records of this period and 
appreciated the fact that even the stern discipline of the Pur- 
itan church and state was not all sufficient. Frequently the 
laws which the author quotes as showing the care their dep- 
uties had for the welfare of the people, are prefaced with 
some such phrase " ye sin of drunkenness doth greatly 
abound," showing that there was probably cause enough for 
many of the stringent laws that were passed. But little 
genealogical material is found between the covers, which is 
much to be deplored. 

The illustrations are very numerous and will be much ap- 
preciated. An account of the 250th anniversary is annexed. 

Boardman Genealogy, 1525-1895. The English home and 
ancestry of Samuel Boreman of Weathersfield, and Thomas 
Boremau of Ipswich, etc., etc., by Charlotte Goldthwaite. 
Published by Wm. F. J. Boardman, Hartford, 1895. Illus- 
trated. 8vo, pp. 778. 

This excellent genealogy, while intended for descendants 
°f Samuel Boreman, or as the name is now spelled, Boardman, 
ts due to the generosity of Wm. F. J. Boardman of Hartford, 
a »d to the energetic and conscientious work of Miss Gold- 
thwaite. A very interesting sketch of the English home, and 



150 QUERIES. 

the English ancestry is given. By this it appears that Thomas 
Boreman of Banbury, co. Oxon, in 1525, was the common 
ancestor of Thomas and Daniel of Ipswich, and Samuel of 
Weatbersfield. Thomas and Daniel were brothers, and sec- 
ond cousins of Samuel, on the father's side, but their fathers 
had married sisters, daughters of Felix Carter, which formed 
a double connection. Considerable space is devoted to cata- 
loguing the heads of other New England Boardman families 
beside that of Samuel, but no attempt to give a genealogy 
beyond three or four generations, and this concisely put. 
Many original papers are published and interesting biographies 
are presented. 

Thomas Boardman (Thos., Thos.), is said to have mar- 
ried Sarah Gurley. This follows the Rowley record, but she 
was Sarah Girdler, widow (Essex Deeds, 85, 202). It is to 
be hoped some one will now take up the Ipswich line and 
prepare a suitable genealogy of that family, of which there 
appear to be three main stems, that of Ipswich, of Topsfield, 
and of Newbury port. \ 



QUERIES. 



30. Gowing. The subscriber would like to hear from 
all persons interested in the genealogy of the Gowing, Going 
or Gowen family. 

Robert H. Gowing, Peabody, Mass. 

31. Manning. Information of the following persons is 
desired, and any aid from those having old records, or from 
other investigators, will be thankfully received. 

Samuel Manning, born 19 June, 1698, at Salem; married 

Margaret . What was her maiden name, and what 

her ancestry? When and where was she born? When did 
she die? Samuel was a gunsmith at Salem until 1748, when 
he removed to Oxford, where he died in 1774. His will 
mentions his granddaughters Sarah and Elizabeth Manning, 



QUERIES. 151 

of Salem, whoso history I should be glad to know ; his grand- 
daughter, the widow Hannah Weld ; his great grandsons, 
Samuel, Mathew and Robert Martin, and his grandsons, 
Samuel and Robert Manning, who had accompanied him to 
Oxford. The will does not mention any of the elder Sam- 
uel's children, from which fact it is believed all were then de- 
ceased ; and, as no list of said children has been found on 
record, their names are unknown with one exception (that 
of Robert, who married Hannah Green). What other chil- 
dren did Samuel and Margaret have ? If the following were 
not their children, who were they? (a), Jacob Manning and 
Mary Tyler, Salem, married 2 July, 1745; (b), Richard 
Manning and Eleanor Mitchell, at Boston, intention of mar- 
riage 27 Feb., 1737-8. Who were Jacob and Richard? 
What children did they have? 

Robert Manning and Hannah Green, mentioned above, 
were married at Salem, 30 March, 1738. What children 
did they have? When and where did the parents die? It is 
probable that the}' lived in, or near, Salem. 

Weld-Martin. Mention has been made above of these 
two families. What were the children of the marriages there 
indicated ? 

John Manning,' born at Salem'28 May, 1668 (son of Capt. 
Nicholas and Elizabeth [Gray] Mamr'ng), was living in Bos- 
ton in 1721, and was doubtless the same who married Joanna 
Lash, 9 May, 1695. What children did he have? 

Jacob Manning, of earlier date than the Jacob before 
mentioned. Dr. Savage says [Vol. Ill, page 650] : "Jacob, 
Salem, son of Return, was deputy marshal in the doleful ser- 
vice of 1692." Where is the proof of this? Return's surname 
was properly Mannings, not Manning, and I find no son of 
his named Jacob. Was not the deputy marshal the same 
Jacob (son of widow Anstiss Manning), who married Sarah 
Stone, of Salem, in 1683? 

Katherink Manning, born 22 April, 1701, at Salem, mar- 
ried 26 Oct., 1722, John Berry ; had children, I think, Mary, 



152 QUERIES. 

who married Samuel Ives, and leather ine, who married John 
Turner, Jr. What other children did they have? 

Mary Manning, sister of the previous, born 6 July, 1706, 
is said in a modern MSS. (the origin of which I have not 
learned) to have married George Booth and had children, 
Robert^ Jacob] Elizabeth, /Sarah and Richard; and possihly 
this is true, but I find a Mary Manning who married Benja- 
min Silsby, 1730 (published 21 May), and, further, one John 
Booth married, 28 Feb., 1749-50, a Mary Silsby who, I sus- 
pect, but do not know, was widow of Benjamin. What was 
Mary's true history? 

Priscilla Manning, Ipswich, born 26 Oct., 1740; mar- 
ried Thomas Morong, of Salem, and, second, Heath; 

and had by first husband, Jonathan (baptized II Nov., 1764) 
and Thomas, Jr. Were there other children by either mar- 
riage? 

John Manning married Elizabeth Stone 28 Oct., 1769; 
perhaps both of Salem. Who was he? Can he have been a 
son of Jacob and Mary (Tyler) Manning, before mentioned? 
When and where did John die? Did he have children? Was 
she the widow Elizabeth Manning who married Wm. Reed, 18 
Feb., 1777? 

William T. Manning, a soldier of the Revolution, died 
at Beverly, 1 June, 1838. He left a widow, Betsey, and 

daughters : Betsey* married Homan ; Mary, married 

Patch, and Alice, married Cox. I am informed 

that William's middle name was Taylor (or? Tyler) which 
may point to family connection, and that his wife was Eliza- 
beth "Woodbury, to whom he was married (at Salem?) 28 
Feb., 1787. I presume this is correct. What was William's 
parentage? and are there descendants now living? 

Caleb Manning, born about 1746, lived at Charlestown, 
Medford and Salem ; married Rachel Rand and had children, 
Nathaniel, Caleb, Abigail, Mary and Elizabeth. Were there 
others? Caleb, Jr., married Lois Graves, 16 April, 1801, 
at Salem, where both died, she in 1807, he in 1810. Who 



QUERIES. 153 

was Lois? What children did they have? and what became 
of them? Are there living descendants of the elder Caleb?

32. Barnes. Information desired of Henry Barnes, mer- 
chant, of Marlboro and Boston. Loyalist and refugee; died 

tt Bristol, Eng., in 1808; wife's name Christian . 

Wanted her surname. He or she was related to the Arbutb- 
nots in some way. Can any body give this relationship? His 
sister, Elizabeth, married Nathaniel Coffin of Boston, whose 
sons were Sir Isaac Coffin, Bart., Admiral of the British navy, 
and Sir John Coffin, Lt. Gen. of the British armv. Are there 
any descendants of Henry Barnes living? 

33. Monroe-Hutchinson. Deacon Isaac Monroe (Wm., 
George, William), married Mary Hutchinson (Thos., Sam'l, 
Xath'l, George), of Charlestown. He died in 1791. Did 
any of the ancestors of the above Isaac and Mary serve in the 
Colonial wars? Did any of their ancestors serve as deputies 
or hold other civil office? B. A. L. 

34. Bissell. What was the lineage of Elizabeth Bissell, 
who married Capt. Abraham Fitch, of Lebanon, Ct., a Rev- 
olutionary soldier and veteran of the French war, who was 
born in 1737? 

Huntington. What was the lineage of Hannah Hunting- 
ton who, about 1730, married Capt. Nathan Fitch of Lebanon, 
Ct.-, grandson of Rev. James Fitch, first minister of Norwich, 
Ct., and the son of Capt. Nathaniel Fitch and his wife [born 
Anna Abel] ? 

36. Hinckley-Throop. How was Rev. Charles Hinck- 
ley of Lebanon, Ct., who married Elizabeth Throop, de- 
fended from Governor Hinckley of Plymouth? Also how 
Was his father-in-law Rev. Benjamin Throop of Bozrat, Ct., 
descended from Col. Adrian Scrope the regicide? 



154 QUERIES.

of Samuel Craft who died at Brookline, Mass., 1771, aged 
seventy ?

Dr. Thomas Deane and Woodbridge Deane of Exeter, N. H., 
or Newbury, Mass. ? The former married Deborah Clark, 
and they were the parents of Jane Deane, wife of Major John 
Oilman, Jr., of Exeter, N. H. 

41. Gaoe. Any one by the name of Gage, or descend- 
ants of John Gage who came to Salem in 1630, are requested 
to write and send any information concerning their ancestry 
or whatever may be of historical interest, either personal or

Paribus defines the name, as Welsh. He says, the family 
originated in a valley, or dale, in North Junterice, Wales, 
from which the name was derived. New England Historical 
and Genealogical Register, Vol. 48, page 128, has the fol- 
lowing will : Robert Dalyber of Selietto in the Parish of 
Stoke Abbott, Dorset, Yeoman 20 March 1632. Proved 27 
Mar, 1633. To be buried in Church Yard, at Stoke Abbot, 
before the church porch, near the place, my Father was bur- 
ied, between the Porch, and the Thorn, there, my will, and 
desire is, to have a Tomb, set over me. The Poor, and 
Church, remembered. I give to my son, Tristram Daliber. 
Imprimis. To my son, Samuel, Dito. To my son Joseph. 
r To my Daughters, Mary, and Sara Doliber, and to my 
youngest daughter, Rebecca Daliber." To my sons in law, 
Walter Burt, and John Lesty. Josiah, son of Walter Burt. 
Three sons of John Lesty, viz., John, Edward and William. 
My wife — the residue, to my oldest son, Robert, who I 
make sole executor. 

Of Robert, the eldest son, I have learned nothing. Tris- 
tram, the second son, bap d at Saint Mary's church, Stoke 
Abbot 1598 (N. E. Hist. & Gen. Reg.), was in America 
among the earliest settlers. In 1648, I find he was again at 
Stoke Abbot, England. (See letters to John Balch and Wil- 
liam Woodbury. N. E. Hist. & Geneal. Reg.) Again, ho 
writes from Stoke Abbot, 1656, England. In Register, Vol. 
6, p. 251, is recorded, under heading of Old Norfolk and 
Essex settlers, the death of Tristram Doliber, July 3, 1664. 
Also, a Joseph Doliber, 1669, aged 40. This ma}' have been

the son of Tristram, by the wife who died in America previ- 
ous to 1648. It was this wife about whom Tristram writes to 
Woodbury and Baleh, requesting to be seut him the day and 
date of her death, under the signature of Mr. Indecot. Rev. 
Mr. Gourley's answer to Mr. W. E. Trask's letter, states 
Tristram was published at Saint Mary's, Stoke Abbott, 1657, 
to Miss Sarah Pav\e. I can give no further information 
in regard to Tristram or his descendants. 2 

Samuel, son of Robert, was at Marblehead, 1647, and no 
doubt at Salem, several years previous. He had wife at Mar- 
blehead, name not known, by whom he had a son Joseph, 
and daughters Dorothy and Rebecca by a former wife. Sam- 
uel was bap d at Saint Mary's, 1608. He was one of the 
selectmen of Marblehead, at the incorporation of that town, 
1648. 3 

In the old records of Marblehead, I find Dorothy Doliber 
married John Waldron ; it was the first marriage recorded at 
that place. I have never learned anything further in reference 
to her. 

Joseph Dolovor (as it is spelled in R. I. records) had a 
wife Rachel. They had, born in Greenwich, R. I., Joseph 
Dolovor, born ; died 1707, unmarried. William Dol- 
ovor, born ; died 1730. John Dolovor, born . 

Rebecca Dolovor, born , who married Peleg Card. 

Lydia Dolovor, born , who married - Parker. Sara 

Dolovor, born , who married Joseph Johnson. Mary 

Dolovor, born , who married Huling. Abigail 

Dolovor, who married, first, King ; second, Nathaniel 

Niles. Joseph, the father, died 1733, calling himself very 
aged ; this man signed, in the settlement of his father's es- 
tate, 1684, as the "eldest son, now of Narragansett, formerly 
of Gloucester ;" his wife died 1733. Arnold's Vital Records 
of R. I., gives several persons, uamed Doliiver, who, no doubt, 
sprang from this man ; perhaps they were the founders of the

SOME NOTES ON THE DOLLIVER FAMILIES. 159 

Dollivers, of Nova Scotia, where I find many of the name. 
The dates of births of these children are not given. 

Among the Dollivers of Nova Scotia are Mr. Elisha Dol- 
Iiver (the Nova Scotia family spelled the name the same as 
the Gloucester family), a prominent shipwright of Port Me- 
day, who has given me, what information they have, in re- 
gard to this family. He says, as far as he can find out, one 
Gamaliel 4 Dolliver settled in Yarmouth, N. S., long before 
the Revolutionary war. He thinks, the maternal ancestor 
of that family, was a Ruth Briggs. Mr. Dolliver is the fourth, 
bearing the name of Elisha, and he was born 1819. I also 
find several women named Ruth Briggs ; Arnold's Vital 
Records show of several by that name. 

Rebecca, daughter of Samuel by his first wife, married, in 
Gloucester, Richard Dike. They had a large family of chil- 
dren, all of whom either died or left the place. No individ- 
ual, bearing the name, has been on Gloucester records, for at 
least, the last hundred years. 

The first mention of Samuel Doliver, in Gloucester, I find 
as follosvs : June 29, 1652. Thomas Milliard, of Newbury, 
formerly of Glouster, fisherman, sells to Samuel Doliber, 
of Marblehead, husbandman, my farm, situate in Fresh Water 
Cove, in Gloster, about 40 Acrs of Tilliage, and Ten 
Acrs of marsh. 

In August, 1G54, Samuel 1 Doliver married, Mary, daugh- 
ter of Robert El well, of Gloster. They had: William 2 
Dolliver (so recorded), born Aug. 16, 1656; who, Mr. Bab- 
son, the Gloucester historian, says: married Ann, daughter 
of Rev. John Higginson. He also says they had children ; 
neither marriage nor births of children are on record, in Glouc- 
ester. 5 " 

4 1 find in R. I. records, an Ishmael Dolover, who was at East Greenwich, before 
1700. 

8 Rev. John Iligginson in his will, dated 1705, mentions his daughter Dolliver's 
children, viz., Sarah, Peter, Paul. 

Anne Dolliver was non compos mentis in lfJOG, when her father calls her about 
fifty years old. In 1713 she was living in the family of Mrs. Sarah Bishop of Reho- 
•>oth, formerly of Saiem.— E. P.

I find in Salem records, a deed in trust, to John Higginson 
merchant, of" Salem, Rev. M r . John Emmerson, Pastor, of 
the 1 st Church of Christ, at Gloster, and John Cooke, mar- 
iner of Gloster, to William and Ann Dolliver, of a house, 
and half acre of land, for her use and after her death to the 
legal heirs of the body of Ann Dolliver. This deed was given 
by Chas. Kedford and wife Eliz b ., of Salem, and is dated, 
March 16, 1687-1688. The said house and land was formerly 
the property of William Elwell. 

Gloster, June 4, 1674. 

Given, to Joseph Elwell, 5 acrs, of ground, and bound- 
ed by the lot layers, and lays upon the south side, of the five 
acrs, given to William EJlery at the same time. (See 
Gloucester Commoners' records, and original grants of land.) 

The reader will see my reasons for being so particular 
about the above, when he gets further on in my record. 

Samuel Dolliver, son of Samuel and Mary, born July 
9, 1658, 1 find mentioned in Gloucester records, as a witness 
to deed of Peter Duncan, 16 — ; he is not mentioned in the 
settlement of his father's estate, 1684. 

Mary 2 Dolliver, daughter of Samuel, born March 26, 
1662 ; married John Sanders, who is supposed^ to be the son of 
the widow Mary, and was supposed to have been lost at sea, 
leaving one son, John ; of her I know no more. 

Richard 2 Dolliver, son of Samuel and Mary, born April 
18, 1665 ; married in Gloucester, Nov. 5, 1697, Agnes Den- 
nett. They had Mary 3 Dolliver, born 1699, who married 

William Davis of Gloucester. 6 Sarah 3 Dolliver, born ; 

died young. Hannah 3 Dolliver, born 1703 ; she married Jo- 
siah Grover of Gloster. Rebecca 3 Dolliver, born 1705; 
mafried Joseph Cowherd of Gloucester. This name is not 
found in Gloucester records after the marriage ; they have no 
children accredited to them. Sarah 3 Dolliver, born 1708;

married Jacob Rowe ; he was one of the crew of the colonial 
sloop Merry Meeting from 24 August to 13 December, 1722. 

Richard, the father, lived on the farm which his father 
bought of Milliard. 

Sarah 2 Dolliver, daughter of Samuel 1 and Mary, born Dec. 
24, 1667; married Joseph Killum of Gloster; she died at 
the age of twenty-one years. They had one daughter Sarah, 
died young. 

John 2 Dolliver, son of Samuel 1 and Mary, born May 27, 
1671 ; married Nov. 1, 1700, Susanna Marriner of Gloucester. 
They had: John 3 Dolliver, born 1702, who was drowned 
in Ipswich river at the age of fourteen years. Susanna 3 Dol- 
liver, born 1704 ; she married James Dike, her cousin. Mrs. 
Dolliver died and Mr. Dolliver married for second wife Eliz- 
abeth Wood. They had Anna 3 Dolliver, born May 26, 1708, 
who married Daniel Fuller of Ipswich. Elizabeth 3 Dolliver, 
born Nov. 20, 1711; went with her father to North Yar- 
mouth. Samuel 3 Dolliver, born 1716; went to North Yar- 
mouth. William 3 Dolliver, born Sept. 22, 1724. John 3 
Dolliver, born 1721 ; these last two also went with the family 
to North Yarmouth and at that place married women named 
Mayo or Ma whew. This whole family left Gloucester 1725 
and took up land at North Yarmouth, Maine. 

Samuel Dolliver the elder died in Gloucester 1684; his 
wife, Mary El well, married again to one James Gardner of 
Gloucester, but lived only a short time ; she died 1686. 

Joseph Dalliber, son of Robert of Stoke Abbot, also came 
to America and was at Salem very early. He also settled at 
Marblehead, where he was a constable 1648, and also the 
collector of church rates (History of Marblehead). He had 7 
by wife Margarett (who perhaps may have been the daughter 
of John Peach, senior, of Marblehead), John Doliber, 
Joseph Doliber, Peter Doliber, Thomas Doliber, Hannah 
Doliber, Mary Doliber, Rebecca Doliber.

Peter 2 Doliber, 8 of Marblehead, married Mary Ward. He 
died 1698, leaving at least two children, Margarett, 3 who 
married a Curtis of Marblehead, and Peter 3 Doliber, who was 
a minor 1706, and appointed his honored mother Mary Wa- 
ters (Mrs. Doliber became the wife of William Waters of 
Marblehead, 1699 ) , his guardian (Probate Court Records) . I 
think he was the Peter Doliber who died unmarried 1736, 
and his sister Margarett Curtis settled his estate. 

I find a Peter D Oliver's (so spelled on stone) tombstone in 
the old graveyard at Marblehead who died 1808. The records 
of Marblehead state a Peter Doliber and Mary Dennis married 
1722; had son Peter born 1724-5. This I think was their son. 
The records at the above town state a Peter Doliber died 
1736, another, same name, died 1746. A Peter Dolliver (so 
spelled, letters received from grandson) , of this family I think, 
died in South West Harbor, Mount Desert, Maine ; he was a 
revolutionary soldier in General Glover's regiment. 

The family of Dollivers (letter from Pilsbury Coombs 
Dolliver), living at Searsport, Maine, and also at Augusta, 
now of Boston, are descendants of the Nova Scotia Dollivers. 
The Dolliver brothers of San Francisco, Cal., are from the 
Marblehead Dolibers (letter received from Clara G. Dolliver), 
as are also the Dollivers of Minneapolis (letter received from 
William Dolliver) and Buffalo, N. Y. The ancestry of the 
Dollivers, of Worcestei and Wakefield, Mass., (letters re- 
ceived from E. and Horatio Dolliver), I have been unable to 
locate. 

FROM GLOUCESTER TOWN AND CHUKCII RECORDS. 

William Dolliver died 1772 in Gloucester, whom the Colum- 
bia Sentinal of that date speaks of as a Capt. William Dolliver 
dying at an advanced age. 

Parson Chandler, of the First Church at Gloucester, in his 
diary says: April 2, 1752. Mr. Dolliver- died last night. 
And, again, April 10, 175(3, went to see Widow Dolliue/', aged 
— . She is declining fast.

family was a hook mark which was presented to the city of 
Gloucester by Samuel E. Sawyer, and is hung in the Public 
Library, engraved with the name of Dolliver.

PETER DOLIVEK AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

Peter 1 Doliver. The first mention of this man is in 
the following deed, book 22, leaf 63, Salem Essex Registry 
Deeds South District : 

Thomas Sanders to Peter Doliver, 

Recorded April 1, 1710. 

To all christian people to whoine this present deed of sale 
shall come. Thomas Sanders of Gloucester in the Counts* 
of Essex, New England, shipwright, sendeth greeting : 

Know Yec, that the said Thomas Sanders, for and in con- 
sideration, of Seventeen Pounds, Ten Shillings current, and 
passable money, of New England, to him in hand paid to sat- 
isfaction, before the ensealing of and delivery of these present.-, 
by Peter Doliver, of said Gloucester, in the county afore- 
said, Cooper — a certain parcel of upland, situated in said 
Gloucester, containing about one acre, be it more, or be it 
less, and is bounded, Eastwardly, by land now in the possess- 
ion of Widow Ellery. AVesterly, by land of William Sergant 
the second, of said Gloucester. Northwardly by common 
land, belonging to said Gloucester. Southwardly, partly by 
said Dollivers, oam Land. (See Commoners Grant to Joseph 
Elwelland Win. Ellery.) 

The remainder of this deed, I will not insert here, as it is 
of no importance, excepting to show that Peter 1 Dol- 
iver, was the owner of land, previous to the buying of the 
above, which is dated, the Seventeenth day, of February, 
Anno Dom. One Thousand, Seven Hundred, and Seven, 
Eight (1707-8.) The above bounds correspond to the bounds 
of the property of Wm. and Ann Dolliver, and the abutters 
Ellery ; and land of Elwell's, which was purchased for Wm. 
and Ann, looks to me, to be the same as the above Dolli- 
vcr'sown land. Peter Doliver was not granted common land ; 
it is not so recorded, and -no other deed is on record, showing 
that he bought land. Then, certainly, he must have inherited 
it, and if this is so, he was a son of William and Ann (Hig- 
ginson) Dolliver. He was no doul)t, then, the M r . Dolliver,

of Parson Chandler's diary, who died 1752 ; and it looks to 
me, as if the Capt. W m ., who died 1772, and the Paul, who 
died 1749, were his brothers. 

Peter 1 Dolliver (whom I shall call the son of Peter Dol- 
iverof the deed of 1707-8) married, in Gloucester, Jan. 25, 
1722, by the Rev. John White, pastor of the First Church of 
Gloucester, Abigail, daughter of Capt. Thomas and Abigail 
(Corney) Sanders, daughter of Capt. John and Abigail (Shil- 
ling) Corney. Abigail Sanders was born in Gloucester, 1705. 
Thomas Sanders, her father, was born in England, 1675 ; his 
wife, Abigail Corney, was born in Boston, 1677. Captain 
Corney was married in Gloucester, Nov. 18, 1670. (I com- 
mence my record from the above Peter who married Abigail 
Sanders, 1722; perhaps some of the younger members of 
the family may eventually connect him with the family of 
Samuel Dolliver.) Capt. Thomas Sanders commanded the 
sloop Merry Meeting, and was in the employ of the colonial 
government until his death in 1742. (See Mass. Archives, 
1722, 1724, 1725, also Louisburg expedition.) 

Children of Peter and Abigail : 

William 2 Dolliver, born in Gloucester, June 17, 1724.

who was lieutenant with his father in the Merry Meeting, and 
took command after his father died 1742. He was in £ov- 
eminent emplo}' until his death, October 24, 1774. Her 
mother Was Judith, daughter of Capt. Andrew Robinson, 
born 1679, and his wife Rebecca Ingersoll. Capt. William 2 
Dolliver had by Abigail, son

far more interesting, exciting and romantic than the history 
of any other period. That was the era of Indian warfare, 
desolated homes, fearful retreats by the settlers, and military 
expeditions from the garrisons and from the Bay. 

The noted military leaders of the day knew Maire Point, as 
Waldron, Andros, Church, and others, visted Pejepscot. 

The outbreak of King Phillip's war, so disastrous to the 
settlements to the south and west served to awaken the fears 
of the settlers about Cascoe Bay, and steps were taken by 
the eastern settlers to guard against Indian aggression. 
Whether the action of the English served to hasten an inev- 
itable outbreak or not, is a mooted question, but certain it 
is that once the spirit of war was aroused it swept practically 
unchecked through the Eastern tribes. In September the 
buildings of Thomas Purchase, the Pejepscot proprietor, were 
looted by the Indians and the shedding of Indian blood by a 
party of English getting in hay, was followed by attacks upon 
Falmouth, Saco, Blue Point and Scarborough. 

The following January several families from Falmouth, 
Saco and other exposed settlements sought refuge in Salem, 
and it was probably at that time that the Maire Point settle- 
ments were permanently abandoned by the early settlers. 

The Indian troubles continued in a desultory manner, but 
entirely to the disadvantage of the English throughout 1676, 
and although a treaty was negotiated, a fresh outbreak was 

(181)

expected in the spring, and consequently the General Court 
ordered that an expedition be sent to the eastward. 

Therefore, on the 7th of Feb., 1677, a force of 150 men, 
English and friendly Indians, embarked at Boston under the 
command of the noted leaders Majors Waldron and Frost, 
their particular purpose being to overawe the Indians and 
obtain the release of English captives. 

This party effected a landing, 18 Feb., at Maire Point, 
" about a league below Maquoit " and a parley was had with 
a party of Indians lead by the notorious Squando and Simon, 
who pretended to be for peace and promised to deliver up 
such captives as they had, in the afternoon. 

Nothing further transpired till noon the day following, 
when a ilotilla of fourteen canoes was perceived up the hay 
pulling for the shore and soon a deserted house was discov- 
ered in flames. Major Frost in command of a scouting party 
unexpectedly intercepted the Indians, who, after the exchange 
of a few shots, resulting in the killing of some Indians, again 
came to a parley and claimed that the house was fired by ac- 
cident, that the captives were too far away to reach the ships 
the preceding day, and finally that the soldiers had been the 
aggressors in the attack. 

DO 

The landing a league below Maquoit may have been oppo- 
site Bunganock Rock which is popularly said to be three 
miles distant from Maquoit. 

Nothing further being accomplished at this place, the ex- 
pedition sailed to the Sagadahock, where a garrison of forty 
men, under Capt. Sylvanus Davis, was established, and then 
returned to Boston, arriving March 11th, without the loss of 
a man. 

The garrison under Davis was soon attacked and shortly 
after withdrawn. 

Peace was finally made at Casco, 12 April, 1678, which 
resulted in the return of many of the settlers to Falmouth, 
but no record is found of a settlement at Maire Point at this 
time.

The Drake Family in England and America, 1360-1895, 
and the descendants of Thomas Drake of Weymouth, Mass., 
by Louis Stoughton Drake, Boston, 1896. 

Sixteen pages of this valuable genealogy is devoted to the 
English ancestry of Thomas Drake, and 273 pages to the 
American family. An account of the family of Sir Francis 
Drake is appended, together with an interesting account of 
the attempt by certain American Drakes to obtain a supposed 
property awaiting claimants. 

The Drake family has found in Mr. Drake a painstaking 
and conscientious historian, whose work, from the long list 
of subscribers, is evidently appreciated. A deserved tribute 
is paid to the deceased brother of the author, who had the 
same tastes as the compiler, and whose work relating to the 
Connecticut Drakes is to be continued by the compiler of 
this volume. 

The portraits are good and numerous, and the index is as 
thorough as need be. The book is evidently one of those 
genealogies destined soon to become scarce. 

An Historical Sketch of Bradford, Mass., in the Revolu- 
tion (including East Bradford, now Groveland). By Louis 
A. Woodbury, M.D., Groveland, 1895. 

This little volume of 112 pages, attracts attention, not only 
by the interesting manner in which is told the story of Brad- 
ford's aid to the patriot cause, but by its completeness, and the 
very many excellent illustrations. 

The names of the town's officers, committee of safety, etc., 
soldiers, and some account of individuals are printed. 

The price is but seventy-five cents. 

The Follett-Dewey, Fassett-Safford ancestry of Captain 
Martin Dewey Follett and his wife Persis Fessett, by Harry 
Packer Ward, 1896. 8 vo, cloth, pp. 249. 

This is an historical genealogical account of two ancestral 
lines of the compiler, besides giving a history of contempo- 
raneous events, including abstracts from diaries and other 
interesting data. There are several illustrations, and much 
of general as well as of special interest. Price, $2.

NOTES AND QUERIES. 



A Genealogical History of the Descendants of 
Stephen and Ursula Streeter of Gloucester, Mass., 
1642, afterwards of Chaiiestown, Mass., 1644-1652, with an 
account of the Streeters of Gondherst, Kent, England. By 
Milford B. Streeter, Brooklyn, X.Y. Salem, Mass., 1896. 
8vo, cloth, pp. xxxvii, 323. $4. 

The title is a description of the book itself, but Rills short 
of enumerating all there is within the covers. 

For instance, the thirty-seven pages of preliminary matter 
not only give an account of the Streeters of Gondherst, 
Kent, but an account of all Streeters in England, of whom 
records could be found, prior to the Restoration. A pedi- 
gree showing the probable ancestry of Stephen Streeter is 
printed, as also a cut of the arms of one family of Streeters 
in England. The main portion of the work is the result of 
the devoted labor of the compiler for many years, and re- 
cords all families of Streeter, Streater, etc., etc., of whom 
he could find traces. The index is remarkably thorough, 
and is the work of Mr. Perly Derby, who is responsible for 
the arrangement of Mr. Streeter's material. 

The type is large, and therefore clear, and the appearance 
of the book is good. The name of Eben Putnam appears as 
the publisher, and that portion of the work dealing with the 
English records is from his pen. A limited edition was 
printed. 

The John Rogers Families in Plymouth and Vicin- 
ity, by Jonah II. Drummond. 8vo, pp. 26. 

This pamphlet is a reprint from the collections of the 
Maine Historical Societv, and is a welcome contribution to 
the genealogy of the Rogers families. 

Mr. Drummond has set at rest the identity of the early 

John Rogers of PlymouthCounty.

BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT.* 



BY NATHANIEL HOLMES BISHOP, OF LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. 

Part II. 

Descendants of Thomas Bishop, merchant, of Ipswich, 
Mass. (1636-1671), who went from Ipswich to Connecticut : 

Thomas Bishop 1 first appears of record, in Ipswich, in 
1636 ; his foreign parentage is unknown. He died there on 
Feu. 7, 1670/1, aged about liny-two, leaving a large estate 
for those times. His will and the inventory of his estate 
are on file at Salem, Mass. 

His wife's name was Margaret, who died about the year 
1680. The inventory of her estate, taken March 31, 1681, 
by her son Samuel, is also filed in Essex County, Mass. A 
niece, who is mentioned in Thomas Bishop's will as " Cousin 
Sarah Bishop," resided with him. 

Their children were : 

Samuel, born at Ipswich, , 1644/5 ; graduate of Har- 
vard College, 1665; died 1687. He married Hester, 
daughter of William Cogswell, Aug. 10, 1675, to whom 
was granted, b} r Governor Sir Edmund Andros, March 
2, 1687, the administration of her husband's estate. 
The inventory was filed Feb. 11, 1688. Widow Hester 
Bishop married, 2d, Thomas Burnham, Dec. 16, 1689. 
He was a widower, born in 1646 ; and was the son of 
John and Elizabeth Burnham. 

John, son of Thomas, 1 of Ipswich, went to Connecticut 
prior to 1675. Vol. 3, p. 268, of the Records of Wethers- 
field, Conn., has the following: Novemb r 3 d 1680 M r John

The landed possessions of Sarah, widow of John Bishop, 
of record, are as follows — Vol. 3, p. 243, Records of 
Wethersfield, Conn. :

twenty acres more or less it is bounded on land of m f

East South East, & on land not laid out South South 
West & North North East." 



As Sarah was the only child, the line of John Bishop of 
Wethersfield continued traceable by that surname no longer 
than 1694. 

A native of Wethersfield recently stated that " John 
Bishop'b widuw was a re&ident in said town in 1094, and, as 
a land-owner, received more land in an allotment then made 
to such from the common lands comprised within the town- 
ship." Can any one inform the writer if the daughter Sarah 
married, and if so who w r as her husband, and what became 
of their descendants? 

Nathaniel Bishop, who was on the bond with Sarah, widow 
of John Bishop, was a brother of Henry Bishop, who first 
appeared at Newport as a citizen in 1638, and was admitted 
an inhabitant of New Haven in 1644, where James Bishop, 
the first secretary of the New Haven Colony, also lived. 
Henry removed to Boston about 1655, and married the 
widow of Samuel Wilbore, of said town, in 1656. 

Nathaniel Bishop was a resident and owner of a home- 
stead and tannery in Ipswich before he moved to Boston, 
where, on Bishop's lane, now Hawley street, he owned 
a valuable property. He had a tannery in Boston, and 
owned the famous tavern " Blue Bell," near the (then) shore- 
lino of what is now Batterymarch street. As no legal 
proof has yet been found to show that Thomas, Nathaniel, 
and Job Bishop, of Ipswich, and Edward and Richard, of 
Salem, and John Bishop, of Newbury (who went to New 
Jersey and became a member of Governor Carteret's coun- 



BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 243 

cil), were brothers, or anyway related (though some gene- 
alogists have asserted a close relationship between them), 
it is interesting to know that Nathaniel and Henry were 
brothers. 

In the inventory made of Henry Bishop's estate, taken at 
Boston, Nov. 6, 1665, "Nath. Bishop deposed that this 
paper containing a true inventory of the estate of the late 
Henry Bishop his brother," etc. I have seen the original 
paper in the Suffolk Registry of Wills, in Boston. 

Thomas, son of Thomas ' Bishop, and brother of the 
John of Wethersfield, was born at Ipswich in 1646, and 
was pno-n<rod in mercantile ventures, owning and com- 
manding his vessel while trading in the West Indies. 
He possessed considerable real estate in the Massa- 
chusetts colony. His history is still being investigated, 
the facts of which will, at some future day, be pub- 
lished. Some of the published genealogical notes, 
relating to several persons by the name of Thomas 
Bishop, natives of New England, are not trustworthy. 

Job, son of Thomas ! Bishop, was born at Ipswich, 
Mass., about 1657. Court testimony gives that he 
"was about 20 in 1677." His wife, Johanna, a sister 
of John Tuttle, represented to the court, on March 31, 
1691, that "the said Job went to sea, and had been 
gone three years." Accordingly, she was granted the 
administration of his estate. In the Essex County, 
Mass., Registry will be found, in Vol. 5, between 1. 45 
and 69, dated 1648, that Job Bishop sells Stephen Cross 
14 acres on south side, bounded N. and S. by land of 
Mr. John Rogers, deceased, W. by river, S. by Town 
Common, " which my father Thomas bought of Rich. 
Saltonstall Esqr." 

As there has been much ambiguity in relation to state- 
ments made about "Job Bishop, of Ipswich," where two 



244 BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 

Jobs lived at the same time, it is important to know that a 
Job Bishop appeared in Ipswich soon after Thomas and 
Nathaniel Bishop settled there. It was he who married Rev. 
George Phillips' daughter, of Watertown, Mass., and, after 
her death, married Mary, by whom he had three daughters, 
Dinah, Sarah, and Hannah. These daughters have been 
given, by genealogists, to Job, the son of Thomas above 
mentioned, regarding whose children, if he had any, wc 
have no information. Job, the son of Thomas, commanded 
a vessel trading to the West Indies, of which he was prol>- 
ably owner, as his father owned interests in four vessels at 
the time of his death. 

One of our oldest genealogists writes me that "Job 
Bishop died at sea, and the surviving members of his family 
(the three daughters of the Job l he gives to this Job) 
removed to Connecticut," but he could not offer any evi- 
dence to prove that any member of Job's family went to 
Connecticut. I hope that some of our Essex County gene- 
alogists will succeed in rinding what became of the three 
daughters of the original settler, Job l Bishop, and will 
trace their lines of descent. As to Job, Capt. Job Bishop, 
the son of Thomas, 1 of Ipswich, it will be a fortunate 
investigation that results in showing if he had any children, 
and if they migrated with Samuel Bishop's children, their 
cousins, to Connecticut. In order to assist such an inquiry 
I will state that Job 1 Bishop, the settler's, three daughters 
were : 

"Dinah, borne the 19 of June, 1657. 
Sarah, borne May 19, 1659. 

Hannah, borne December 24, 1662 " (?) — leaf torn off. 
Their- mother's name was Mary . 

Job 1 Bishop married his first wife, Elizabeth, daughter ot 
Rev. George Phillips, "one that he brought from Eng- 
land" in 1648. "She died 27 Feb. 1652." I find in 



BRUNSWICK, ME., INTENTIONS OF MARRIAGE. 245 

the Boston Registrars' Office, in the book of deaths, 
from 1630 to 1800: 

'Elizabeth, the daughter of Job and Elizabeth Bishop, of 
Ipswich — dyed 27. 12. 51" (1651). It will be seen 
by the date of Mrs. Job 1 Bishop's death that this 
daughter may have died about the same time as her 
mother. I have not been able to find records of the 
births of other children of Job 1 and Elizabeth Bishop. 

Nathaniel, the youngest son of Thomas * Bishop, died a 
minor, at Ipswich, May 10, 1673, about two years 
after his father's decease.

NOTES. 



The delayed issues of the Essex Institute Historical 
Collections, comprising Nos. 13-24 of Vol. XXXI. for the 
whole year 1895, and Nos. 1-6 of Vol. XXXII. for the first 
half of 1896, have been issued. 

Mr. Rantoul, the newly elected president of the Society, 
contributes a memoir of Rev. Edmund B. Willson (1820- 
1895), his predecessor in office, which is accompanied by 
a portrait, a remarkably good likeness of Mr. Willson. Mr. 
Willson was a man who practised all the virtues, and was 
endeared not only to his parishioners, but all who came in 
contact with him, and was thoroughly appreciated in Salem. 

A description of the famous country house of Hon. Will- 
iam Browne, and an article upon the English ancestry of 
"Rear Admiral" Thomas Graves, of Charlestown, by Eben 
Putnam, together with an account of the Pillsburys, of Leek, 
Staffordshire, England, by Miss E. A. Getchell and Eben 
Putnam, with the index, complete Volume XXXI. 

The particularly noteworthy paper in the succeeding vol- 
ume is that entitled " Some Claims of Salem on the Notice of 
the Country. " This is the address of Mr. Rantoul before 
a Historical Pilgrimage from Philadelphia, and deals 
chiefly with the events of Gage's residence in Salem when 
that place was the temporary capital of the colony, and 
Leslie's raid ; Mr. Rantoul presents some new matter, es- 
pecially in the notes appended concerning that event. He 
thinks, with reason, the force which marched to Salem from 
Marblehead comprised 246 men. 

Another paper, dealing with the same period, but not 
showing the same exhaustive study as the former, and cov- 
ering a much wider range, is Mr. Streeter's " Salem before

the Revolution." Mr. Streeter is especially hard upon th« 
Loyalists, and must find excuses for such of them as he ha* 
cause to praise, for their being "unhappily involved with, 
the Tories." 

The valuable Topsfield Baptisms are continued by Mr. 
Dow. 

It is strange, with the thirty-two volumes of most valu- 
able contributions to Essex county and colonial history 
which the Institute has published, that the Collections are 
not more generously supported. A membership of nearly 
1,000 in the Society would seem to indicate that the cati>e 
of local history and genealogy was anything but dormant in 
Essex county, yet it is unlikely that the receipts from sub- 
scriptions to the Collections exceed a third of their co.-t. 
The genealogical public are remiss in allowing the Collec- 
tions to lag, on account of the loss their publication entails 
on the Society. Subscription, $3 per annum.

BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 



THE MIGEATIOX TO CONNECTICUT OF MEMBERS OF SAMUEL 

bishop's FAMILY. 

(Continued from page 245.) 

Samuel Bishop, son of Thomas Bishop, of Ipswich, died in 

Ipswich, Mass., in 1687. His widow, Hester (Cogswell) 

Bishop, under commission from Gov. Sir Edmund Andros, 

became the administratrix of her husband's estate. The 

Probate Records of Essex county, Mass., Vol. 8, fol. 74, 

show that "Mrs. Esther Burnham, alias Bishop, was chosen 

Adm'x " and was " Thro' alteration of Gov't not capable of 

p r fecting the same. Therefore Renouncing y e same, Desiring 

it may be conferred upon Samuel Bishopp, eldest son of s d 

Sam'!." The date of this is 17 Jan., 1703/4, at which time 

the youngest son of said Samuel, 20 Dec, 1703, chose the 

eldest son as his guardian, to which office the said eldest son 

was appointed. 

The children of Samuel Bishop and Hester (Cogswell) 
Bishop were : 

Margaret, born May 17, 1676. She married Ichabod Griggs, 
born at Roxbury, Mass., Sept. 27, 1695, bp. Oct. 10, 
1675, died , 1718. 

Of their nine children, the voun^est was Ichabod, who 
lived in Newent parish, then, in 1741, a part of Norwich, 
Conn. ; since 1786 a part and now the whole of the township 
of Lisbon, Conn., in which place was baptized his oldest 
child, Joshua, 8 Jan., 1743.. About the time of his second 
child's birth (Ichabod), he removed to Tolland, Conn., in 
which he held official positions, civil and ecclesiastical, and 
there died, May 9, 1795. Leveret Griggs, D.D., who died

Of the early entries on 
the Norwich books of 
record those relating to 
the families of Samuel 
and John Bishop were 
the only ones found of 
that surname. 



Samuel Bishop, son of Samuel of Ipswich, Mass., went, 
about the time of his majority, with his youngest brother, 
John, whose legal guardian he was, into the north-eastern 
part of Norwich, Conn., to lands adjacent to its northern 
bounds. 

The tract had, in part, been the common land of the Con- 
necticut Colony, and as such assigned for occupation to a 
remnant of the Indian people who had been numerous there. 
When that tract, called at first the "Crotch of the Eivers" 
(where the Quinebaug and the Shetucket join and form the 



BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 273 

Thames), was, near 1700, opened to purchasers, a section 
of it was bought by several gentlemen of Ipswich, Mass., of 
whom one was Samuel Bishop. In 1723 the first church in 
that part of Norwich was formed. The first parish estab- 
lished there in 1718, and called Newent then, retains that as 
still its legal name. That community of voters was incor- 
porated as the town of Lisbon in 1786. 

As Mrs. Frances M. Caulkins' History of Norwich, 
Conn., published in 1866, is now difficult to obtain, I will 
give, from its pages, ail that relates to this migration of 
Ipswich Bishops : 

p. 258. " Samuel and John Bishop were early settlers in 
this district. They were probably brothers, and sons, 
or grandsons, of Thomas Bishop of Ipswich. Samuel 
married, in 1706, Sarah Forbes. John, 1718, married 
Mary Bingham. Samuel was admitted 1702, and John 
in 1710." 

p. 257. " Capt. Fitch sold this grant to certain purchasers 
from Ipswich, Mass., viz. : Joseph Safford, Richard 
Smith, Mesbach Farley, Matthew Perkins, and Samuel 
Bishop." 

p. 439. M The church was constituted and Eev. Daniel 
Kirtland ordained its minister, Dec. 10, 1723. The 
original members were : Daniel Kirtland, the pastor, 
Samuel Lathrop and Joseph Perkins, who were chosen 
deacons, John Bishop, Jeremiah Tracy (son of Thomas 
Tracy of Preston) Isaac Laurence, and Isaac Laurence, 
jr., the church resting on seven pillars, a favorite num- 
ber in that day." 

p. 344. "At the rebuilding of the Norwich bridge, 1728, 
as men were gathered on it, the main timber broke, and 
people were thrown into the river. Among the most 
considerably wounded was John Bishop." 

p. 260. w In 1725, the proprietors of the common and undi- 
vided land put an end to all controversy by giving a 
quit-claim deed to Capt. Jabez Perkins, Lieut. Samuel 



274 BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 

Bishop, Mr. Joseph Perkins, and Mr. John Saffbrd, of 
all the land in the crotch of the rivers, etc. ... 

" In 4745 the descendants of Owaneco and other prin- 
cipal Mohegans, for the sum of £137, executed a quit- 
claim deed of the Indian reservation in favor of the 
English claimants. This instrument, which extinguished 
the last aboriginal claim to land in the nine-mile-square, 
was in substance as follows : Ann, alias Cutoih, Betty 
Aucun, widow, Wedemow, daughter of Mahomet, 
deceased, Ann, otherwise young Ben's wife, all of whom 
are descendants of Owaneco, late sachem of Mohegan, 
and the said young Ben, or Ben Uncas, jr., and Daniel 
. Pauganeek, all of Mohegan , for the consideration of 137 
pounds in bills of credit — to Capt. Samuel Bishop. 
Joseph Perkins, Jacob Perkins, John Safford, Joseph 
Saffbrd, and Solomon Saffbrd, to all of them in propor- 
tion as they now possess- 1 — do now relinquish all right 
and title to the tract of 300 acres more or less in 
Newent, in the crotch of the rivers Quinebaug and 
Showtucket, called the Indian Land, abutting south- 
easterly on the Quinebaug — April 9, 1745. " 

About nine years after Samuel Bishop had become a citi- 
zen of the Connecticut Colony, the following conveyance of 
a portion of his father's estate became of record in the Essex 
County, Mass., office, — Vol. 29, p. 259, Oct. 24, 1711: 
"We, Samuel and John Bishop, both of Norwich, New London 
Co., Conn., and Aaron Burnham, Ips., and wife Esther, and 
Ichabod Griggs and wife Margaret of Roxbury all heirs unto 
Samuel Bishop, late of Ipswich, de'cd, for £16, deed to John 
Pingra of s d Ipswich all our right in comon land in Ipswich 
which our father Samuel Bishop of Ipswich purchased ot 
Kichard Saltonstall Esq., Sept. 23, 1680." 

The children of Samuel and Sarah (Forbes) Bishop will, 
I hope, be followed on their lines of descent by Connecticut 
genealogists. I can furnish but little in relation to any of 



BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 275 

them. The son, Samuel, born Feb. 2, 1708/9, was clerk of 
the parish of Newent in or before 1734, and continuously 
for many years. He married, 1st, Oct. 6, 1731, Abigail, 
only child of Daniel Corning, who, born in Beverly, Mass., 
died in Newent, Conn., May 28, 1746, aged fifty-seven 
years. Abigail (Corning) Bishop died March 12, 1747, 
aged thirty-two years. Samuel Bishop married, 2d, Abigail 

, who died April 4, 1788, aged seventy-seven years. 

Capt. Samuel Bishop died in Hanover, then Lisbon, now 
Sprague, Conn., Feb. 13, 1790. Issue by each wife sur- 
vived him : 

Hester, daughter of Samuel Bishop of Ipswich, Mass., 
was born May 21, 1681, at Ipswich. The date of her 
decease may be found in the Newent Church Records. In 
1724 she was resident in Newent, Conn., and then was 
admitted to membership in the church there ; was speci- 
fied as the wife of Aaron Burnham, born at Ipswich, 
Mass., 12 Sept., 1676, son of Thomas Burnham, jr. 
The said Aaron was admitted later to the same member- 
ship. He was a mariner. After her husband's death 
she removed from Newent and joined her kindred. 

Thomas, son of Samuel, of Ipswich, Mass., was born there 
Sept. 21, 1683. Vital statistics of him have not been 
obtained by me as yet. The paternal homestead may 
have become his distinctive possession. Any notes re- 
lating to his line will be acceptable to the writer, and 
full credit will be given to persons furnishing them. 

John, the youngest son of Samuel Bishop, of Ipswich, was 
born Sept. 20, 1685. He died Nov. 14, 1755. It was 
he who came, under the legal guardianship of his elder 
brother, Samuel, from their native town of Ipswich, 
Mass., to Newent, Conn., and who was admitted a 
citizen there eight years later than the admission of his 
brother to the same settlement. Had he remained in 
Ipswich we would not, in all probability, as a people, 



276 BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 

have enjoyed the works of that gifted descendant of hk, 
Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, the distinguished Anieriemj 
poet, for it was John Bishop's daughter, Temper4nc* 
Bishop, who married Dr. Holmes's ancestor, " Captain 
and Doctor David Holmes," of the Newent, Conn., 
Records. 

John Bishop is noted as "a prosperous farmer, a 
worthy citizen, and a well-reputed Christian man." He 
bought his farm of Mesbrack Farley, who was al.-o an 
Ipswich man. He married July 30, 1718, Mary, daughter 

of Thomas and H (Backus) Bingham, born Feb. 26, 

1697-8 ; died Oct. 17, 1724. Miss Bingham was prob- 
ably of Windham, Conn. He married, 2d, Aug. 22, 
1727, Temperance Lathrop, who survived him and 
married Capt. James Grant, Dec. 14, 1763, and again 
married Sept. 16, 1773, Elkanah Hewitt. 

The Norwich Kecords give the following entries of children 

born to John Bishop and his first wife H (Backus) 

Bingham : 

Mary, born June 25, 1719. 

Deborah, born May 22, 1722. 

John, born Aug. 4 and died Sept. 14, 1724. 

Children by second wife, Temperance (Lathrop) Bishop : 

John, born Oct. 13, 1731. 
Temperance, born Oct. 15, 1733.

names of such of his children and their married names as 
are not found of record elsewhere.

lately bought of Joseph Woodcock at Newent, parish of 
Norwich. 

In an early copy of the Records, in the clerk's office at 
Norwich, it is given that John Bishop died in 1724, and mar- 
ried a second time in 1727. 

The clerk can show the visitor, however, the tattered 
original book of record, when it will be found that in copying 
from it into the new book a clerical error in the old one was 
not noted, which will lead one astray. It is the omission of 
the son John's birth, not entered ia the original copy, which 
confuses the genealogist. 

In this place opportunity is offered to correct a grave 
error made by Dr. Savage, in his Genealogical Dictionary, 
which has caused a large amount of costly and useless 
searching anions: several families on both sides of the Atlan- 
tic. It relates to this John Bishop and Dr. John Bishop of 
Bradford and Medford, Mass., two individuals who were 
made one man by Dr. Savage, who could not be made to 
change his opinion, against which a descendant of Dr. Bishop 
personally protested during the lifetime of Dr. Savage. 
The author of the Genealogical Dictionary had not the 
shadow of any evidence to support his theory. Wyman 
supported it ; and many other genealogists, even to this day, 
follow Dr. Savage in his errors, to the great loss of their 
clients and the placing of obstacles to truthful inquiries. 
I have shown that John, the son of Samuel Bishop, of Ipswich, 
migrated to Connecticut and died there. Dr. John Bishop, 
who is called by Savage the son of Samuel of Ipswich, — 
erroneously, — is claimed by his descendants to have been 
connected with the Bishops of Sussex County, England, 
and was the first of his own line who came to New England. 
He appears in Bradford (once a part of the Ipswich 
Colony) , Mass., about 1718. Bradford Church Records give : 

Sarah, w. of Dr. John Bishop, adm. Feb. 1719-20.

278 BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 

In April, 1723, Dr. John Bishop moved his family to 
Mcdford, and died there about 1739, leaving widow Sarah 
and children Sarah and John. His descendants remained in 
Medford until about the year 1868. Mrs. John Bishop was 
Sarah Bond, from a well-known Essex County family. John 
Williams, the early settler, and wife Jane had a son John, 
who married Rebecca Coleby, daughter of Anthony Coleby 
and wife Susanna. This John was the father of Sarah 
Williams, who was the wife of Joseph Bond and mother of 
Sarah Bond (of Haverhill, Mass.), the wife of Dr. John 
Bishop. Joseph Bond, the husband of Sarah Williams and 
father of Sarah Bond (wife of Dr. John Bishop), was the 
son of John Bond and Hester Blakeley. The date of this 
daughter's marriage to Dr. Bishop has not yet been found. — 
See N. E. Hist. Geneal. Register for April, 1894, p. 213. 

The children of John Bishop and Temperance (Lathrop) 
Bishop, his wife, were : 

John, born Oct. 13, 1731; bap. Oct. 17, 1731; married 

Ruth , who was born Oct. 15, 1735; admitted to 

Newent Church, 1759. 

Temperance, who, on the Newent Records, is termed 
Temperance Bishop, jr., born Oct. 15, 1733. 

She was married Nov. 12, 1761, to David Holmes, 
widower, of Woodstock, Conn. On the Newent Records 
he is given as Capt. & Doct. David Holmes. His military 
title preceded his medical one, and pertained to him as hav- 
ing served in the contest that resulted in England's acquisi- 
tion of Canada. 

From the said David and Temperance (Bishop) Holmes, 
his wife, came the parentage of Rev. Abiel Holmes, D.D., 
LL.D., and, among other descendants, in the third degree, 
Oliver Wendell Holmes, M.D., LL.D., the poet, with a 
brother and a sister to them, the wife of Rev. and Hon. 
Charles W r . Upham, M.C., late of Salem, Mass. 

A descendant of John Plolmes, of Woodstock, Conn., sent 
me the following during 1893 : 



BISHOP FAMILIES OF CONNECTICUT. 279 

"As to Temperance (Bishop) Holmes, it is recorded that 
' Her exalted character and noble bearing impressed all who 
knew her.' As the Town Records make her Mrs. Temper- 
ance Bishop (prior to her marriage with Capt. Holmes), it 
is contended by some that Bishop was not her maiden sur- 
name ; but I find that anciently, in New England, the 
honored and generally much-desired title of Mrs. was 
frequently bestowed upon unmarried females* who had 
attained to the age of thirty years, or thereabouts. Her 
mother was Temperance Lathrop, and both the Christian 
and surname have been perpetuated in the family. 

" Dr. David Holmes had a son named Lathrop, and my 
father had a sister named Temperance. Dr. David Holmes's 
first wife was Mehitable Mayo, by whom he had eight 
children, my grandmother being the youngest. 

" He also had eight children by Temperance Bishop,, his 
second wife. The second son by her was the Rev. Abiel 
Holmes, the father of Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes." 

Abiel Holmes, born at Woodstock, Conn., 24 Dec, 17G3, 
died at Cambridge, Mass., 4 June, 1837. He married 
Mary Stiles, daughter of Pres. Stiles of Yale College. 

Criticisms on the foregoing genealogical notes, or any con- 
tributions for their enrichment, will be thankfully received 
by the author, and due credit will be given for the same in 
future publications. It is the author's desire to discover the 
foreign parentage of the early Bishop families of New Eng- 
land and New Jersey. To attain that end he has employed 
several genealogists in Great Britain to search the govern- 
ment record offices as well as church registers. Any in- 
formation now in the possession of descendants of these 
early Bishop families which will throw light upon their 
foreign ancestry, if sent to the author, Lake George, 
Warren County, N. Y., may assist in accomplishing his 
object.

PATRONYM AND ORIGIN OF THE GOLD- 

THWAITE FAMILY. 



BY R. G. CARTER, U.S. ARMY. 



(Continued from page 128.) 

The principal throughfare in Pateley Bridge, called High 
street, is a long narrow avenue of shops and houses of mixed 
age and design that climbs the hill eastwards from the 
bridge. Though none of the present houses are of special 
antiquity, the street itself is undoubtedly very old, remind- 
ing one of the curious narrow streets of Normandy (whence 
many of the early inhabitants of this neighborhood emi- 
grated), and which restricted thoroughfares were formed at 
a time when the traffic of foot and horse passengers was 
alone thought of. The street is, doubtless, laid upon a 
British or Roman highway. No fewer than three separate 
paved ways have been met with at different depths while 
excavating in the neighborhood of the bridge, the original 
Celt-Roman ford across the river being, like that at Hamps- 
thwaite, concealed by the river gravel of many centuries. 
The town possesses several good inns and other houses of 
accommodation, besides a variety of shops and all the 
ordinary requirements of visitors intending a long or short 
stay. There is a good Wesley an chapel, built in 1776 ; it 
contains the old canopied pulpit from which the celebrated 
founder of the sect, the Rev. John Wesley, preached on 
several occasions. He not only visited Pateley Bridge many 
times, but was also at Braisty Pasture, Hardcastle Garth, 
and North Portune Houses, Brimham. One of the ministers 
of the old chapel, it is interesting to note, was the Rev. 
Joseph Kipling, whose grandson is the well-known popular 

(280) 



PATRONYM OF THB GOLDTHWAITE FAMILY. 281 

novelist, Mr. Rudyard Kipling, who is no stranger to Nid- 
derdale, and is author of a local story entitled "On Green- 
how Hill." The ancient church or chapel-of-ease to St. 
Wilfrid's Ripon, erected apparently after the completion of 
that noble pile towards the end of the thirteenth century, is 
now a deserted but interesting ruin, situated upon an emi- 
nence about a half-mile east of the town. It was dedicated 
to the Blessed Virgin, and not to St. Cuthbert, as is com- 
monly asserted. From manuscripts in the record office it is 
found that a chantry was founded by royal license in this 
chapel in 1320 by the celebrated cleric and statesman, John 
de Markenfield, chancellor of the exchequer, and Richard 
de Lynlon, chaplain ; mass was to be celebrated daily in 
the chapel for the souls of the said John and his kinsman, 
William de Hamelton, who likewise was one of the most 
distinguished men of his time. 

The church, as stated, is now in ruins, having fallen to de- 
cay at the beginning of this century. The main portion of 
the old building is of the time of Edward I., while the tower 
was only built at the end of the seventeenth century, during 
the long (fifty-eight years) incumbency of the Rev. Thomas 
Furniss. His initials and those of the parish church- wardens 
appear above the tower arch. In the burial-yard adjoining 
the church is an old octagonal shaft, which has a dial upon 
it, and which bears the same initials, T. F., along with the 
following others: F. L., I. B., A. C, R. B., and the date 
1714. Likewise in the church-yard are some tombstones of 
interest. Here, in truth, repose the ashes of many who in 
generations past have bred the after-glow of an honorable and 
enduring fame, or who have transmitted it to live after them 
in future ages* 

In the church-yard is an ancient carved stone, 19 inches 
by 14J inches and 8 inches thick. The figure upon it is 
curvilinear, conforming with the rectangular shape of the 
stone, and having in the centre a rude kind of cross, the

282 PATRONYM OF THE GOLDTHWAITE FAMILY. 

whole of the carving being raised slightly above the surface 
of the stone, in the style of the thirteenth — fourteenth cen- 
tury, or coeval probably with the foundation of the church. 
The view from the church-yard is of great extent, as well a* 
one of the finest and most picturesque in Nidderdale. 

The new church of St. Cuthbert was built in 1826. In the 
tower is a fifteenth-century bell brought from the old church, 
and inscribed, Sancie Petre Or a Pro Nobis; the last lettei 
of Nobis appearing reversed. Between each word of the in- 
scription is a small shield bearing the sacred monogram 
I.H.S., and above this are two crowns, a very uncommon 
device. The registers of the church of Pateley, which begin 
with the year 1552, contain many interesting references to 
the customs, fees, and appurtenances of the church and parish 
at different times. The present incumbent is Rev. Alex. 
Scott. 

Ages before the monks obtained their mining rights in 
this neighborhood the lead mines had been worked by the 
inhabitants of the district. On Jan. 23, 1734-5, two large 
pigs of lead, each weighing upwards of eleven stone, were 
turned up on Hayshaw Moor at Greenhow, three miles to the 
west of Pateley. Both of them bore raised letters, as fol- 
lows : Imp Caes Domino Avg Cos VII. (or, unabbreviated, 
Imperative Ccesare Domitiano Augusto Consule Septimum), 
while upon the other side was the word Prig, thus denoting 
that the lead had been smelted in the country of the Brigantes 
in the year A.D. 87. One of these pigs of lead, though now 
more than eighteen hundred years old, is almost as good 
and perfect as the day it was fashioned. It is preserved at 
Ripley Castle. The other is in the British Museum. At 
Ripon, some ten miles east, was discovered a handsome gold 
torque, a heavy bronze sword, a vase of Roman workman- 
ship, and portions of a tessellated pavement. In addition to 
these interesting proofs of the Roman occupation of the dis- 
trict must be mentioned the discovery in Nidderdale, in 
1868, of a valuable collection of Roman coins. These coins 



PATRONYM OF THE GOLD1HWAITE FAMILY. 283 

were accidentally discovered by two youths while playing in 
the cavern known as Tom Taylor's Chamber, in the pict- 
uresque How Stean gorge, near the head of Nidderdale, 
which hoard had probably been placed there by the original 
owners on their leaving the island, now more than fourteen 
centuries ago. It is recorded in the " Saxon Chronicle " that 
A.D. 418 the .Romans collected all the hoards of gold 
that were in Britain and " they hid in strange places, so that 
no man might find them, and some they carried away to 
Gaul." Twenty-five silver pieces and- four brass ones are in 
the possession of Mr. Metcalfe, of Castlestead, upon whose 
estate they were found ; while ten pieces (being duplicates) 
are held by Mr. Yorke, of Bewerley Hall. These coins have 
all been deciphered and identified, and the whole collection, 
after being photographed, have been reproduced and pub- 
lished, with explanatory notes, in that valuable work, "Nid- 
derland and the Garden of the Nidd, a Yorkshire Rhine- 
land," by Harry Speight, from which the foregoing has been 
taken, as well as what follows. 

Pateley Bridge is undoubtedly the Kenaresforde, als. Neres- 
ford, of " Domesday ; " derived from the Anglo-Saxon, neer, 
lower, cognate with the Teutonic and Scandinavian, ?ieder, 
nteder, from which the dale, perhaps, also takes its name. 
The terminal ,ford, moreover, proclaims it to have been situate 
on or near a Roman highway, which circumstance accords 
with many discoveries which have been advanced in support 
of the Roman occupation of the place. The given compound 
has evidently the meaning of the lower ford, in contradis- 
tinction to one higher up the dale, probably at Wath, where 
the river was formerly much wider than it is now, and the 
name still indicates that a ford existed there. That Pateley 
Bridge was situate upon a Roman thoroughfare is highly 
probable, although this is not shown, like many others of this 
era in Yorkshire, upon the "Itinerary" of Antonine. But 
the necessity of some good passage-route for the expedition 
of the Roman soldiery upon the subjugation of the warlike 



284 PATRONTM OF THE GOLDTHWAITE FAMILY. 

hordes of native Celts inhabiting this remote mountainous 
and wooded region can hardly be questioned. It is held, 
therefore, that Pateley Bridge lay along an important route 
through this highland country, which, starting from the great 
camp at Overborough, near Kirkby Lonsdale, took an almost 
direct course eastward, crossing Ribblesdale at Stainfortb, 
over Malham moor by the street and Ebor gate, passing 
Grassington, and thence over Greenhow hill to the ford at 
Pateley Bridge, still holding eastward up the High street to 
Ripon, and joining the great Watling street three miles east 
of the city ; evidence of the old Roman presence having been 
found along the whole line of this march. 

Considering that the Romans with the conquered Britons 
worked the lead mines at Greenhow, a very high and exposed 
locality, we may reasonably infer that in winter, at any rate, 
they would seek lodgment at a lower and more sheltered 
situation ; Pateley Bridge being the most suitable and acces- 
sible place for winter habitation, we find again further 
evidence here of a Roman or early British settlement. Tbe 
position and extent of the principal encampment have not as 
yet been accurately defined, but there is no doubt that the 
site of Castlestead formed part of the original camp or fortress. 
A strong guard-house, or mansione, would be stationed at 
the ford, as customary all the year round, but of the position 
of this nothing is known. "When the mansion at Castlestead 
was built, thirty years ago, the mound on which it stands 
was found to be so shaped and designed as to leave no 
-doubt of its having been fashioned by artificial means as a 
place of habitation, although it bore the appearance at first 
sight of being a large tumulus. But no traces of burial were 
observed, nor was any foundation or evidence of stone 
erections discovered ; but stone would not be necessary in a 
district where timber was abundant. The top of the mound 
was slightly hollowed, and enclosed on all sides 03' the great 
agger, while the river, which is now spanned by an orna- 
mental bridge about one hundred feet in length, formed a 



PATEOIsTTM OF THE GOLDTHWAITE FAMILY. 285 

natural defence on the north and east sides ; the land sides 
being probably protected with felled trees, etc. 

The discovery of Roman coins of such an early date in the 
dale (none of those found being later than about A.D. 130), 
coupled with the two pigs of lead, bearing the impress of 
the Roman equivalent to A.D. 87, seem to point to the 
probability of this part of the country having been invaded 
and conquered by the army of Julius Agricola shortly 
after his celebrated landing in Britain about A.D. 75. 
The Emperor Hadrian, who died A.D. 130, and who 
spent some years in England, is known to have visited 
this part of Yorkshire, and it is not unlikely that he 
travelled from the great Eoman city of Isurium (Aid- 
borough) through Ripon and Pateley (visiting the Green- 
how lead mines) to several western stations.* The old 
Britons of this isolated region forgetting in time the civiliz- 
ing arts and influences of their departed conquerors, Pateley 
Bridge, as upper Kidderdale generally, must have lapsed 
into a state of semi-barbarism, and for centuries after the 
Roman evacuation can have been but the shadow and echo 
of its former self. We have to pass on to Norman times 
before we get any positive evidence of the locality again. 
Then in 1086 it is stated in "Domesday " that Gospatric, 
the Saxon owner, who was permitted to retain the estate, 
had but half a carucate of land in Neresford to be taxed, 
"and it is waste." The same record, however, mentions 
that there were one and one-half carucates in Chenaresford 
(Pateley Bridge) and two carucates in Wiveshall (Wilsill) 
belonging to the archbishop of York, an old property com- 
prised in the township now known as Bishopside, which 
was granted to the see of York by the Saxon king Athel- 
stan, first proclaimed king of England A.D. 939-40, and 
afterwards held by the archbishops of York of the king in 
chief. 

* On the south wall of the mansion at Castlestead there is carved a life-size head 
in relief of the Emperor Hadrian, with a suitable inscription above an elegant canopied 
seat.

During the civil wars the men of Nidderdale were up lu 
arms either on the side of the King or Parliament, .sev- 
eral of the leaders being Nidderdale squires. Upon the 
restoration of peace, a good deal of house renovation and 
rebuilding took place, and nearly all the houses at Pateley 
Bridge appear to have been built after that time. That 
there was at least one hostelry in the town in the period of 
the wars appears from an indictment in 1648, wherein it is 
stated that one Robert Inman ("Bold Robin," of Bouth- 
waite) and his son, Michael Inman, then a youth of eighteen 
years, were "returning from Skipton fair through the village 
of Pateley Briggs." Here they encountered, drinking at an 
ale-house, a surgeon named Webster and a number of sol- 
diers belonging to the Protector's army, who were convey- 
ing medicaments and ammunition to Barnard castle, for 
the forces there, to repel the Duke of Hamilton's invasion. 
" Bold Robin " was challenged to guide the party over the 
moors to Kirkby Malzeard, but refused to do so ; the report 
before the council states that the said Robert Inman (being 
a man of great size and muscular power) did dismount and 
openly fight and assault the soldiers. At any rate, the 
mare on which " Bold Robin " rode was " annexed " and used 
in the service of the Parliament ; whereupon arose these 
actions at law, and in the end the surgeon, Webster, was 
indemnified. The depositions before the barons were pul>- 
lished, from which it appears that Capt. Anthony Beck- 
with, a son-in-law of Robert Inman, raised a troop (in 
which Owine, the son of the said Robert Inman, was a lieu- 
tenant) in the Parliament's service. It is also stated that 
this troop was stationed at Pateley Bridge, that Robert 
Inman had " received many woundes for that his aifecion 
to the said Parliament ; that his house had been spoyled ; 
his cattle stolen, and that he had lost to the value of £1,000, 
owing to the war ; further, that he had been cast into prison 
at Rippon by Lieutenant-Colonel Norton, in that he had re- 
fused to take the oath of allegiance with the Cavaliers." 



PATRONYM OF THE GOLDTHWAITE FAMILY. 287 

From the Inmans referred to, or their branches, descended 
the Liverpool family of Inmans, the well-known transatlan- 
tic steamship owners. At least six of the seven principal 
conspirators concerned in the Gunpowder Plot came from 
Nidderdale or had family connections there, and the baptis- 
mal entry of Guy Fawkes is still shown in the parish reg- 
ister of the church of St. Michael-le-Belfry in York, under 
date April 16, 1570. 

Another remarkable and interesting fact connected with 
this region, once the home of the Goldthwaites, is that Kams- 
gill, only five miles from Pateley Bridge, was the birthplace 
of Eugene Aram, the character of Bulwer's, so full of pathetic 
interest wherever the story has been read the world over. 
He was born here in 1704, and married at Middlemoor, in 
1731, Anna, daughter of Christopher Spence, of Loft house. 
The old thatched house in which the Arams lived was pulled 
down many years ago. In a cottage adjoining the site of 
the old dwelling, now occupied by the village constable, is 
a curious carving of a human head, which is believed to be 
the work of Aram, and to have come originally from his 
house. One of Aram's daughters, Elizabeth, married a 
Yorke, and died at North Allerton, Jan. 30, 1805. She 
was quite a celebrity, and was sought out by people from 
far and wide. Eugene Aram moved to Knaresborough in 
1734, and lived in a small cottage up the "White Horse" 
yard; and here, beneath this humble straw-thatched roof, 
the M English Erasmus " had his little school. Here his 
children were born.* 

While in prison, shortly before his execution for the mur- 
der of Daniel Clark, in 1759, Aram, at the request of Rev. 
Thos. Collins, then vicar of Knaresborough, wrote a very 

*In the Knaresborough church registers are the following entries relating to Aram : 
Baptisms — Jan. 28, 1734, Aiine, daughter of Eugenius Aram; Feb. 22, 1737, Henry, 

son of Engcnius Aram; Nov. 11, 1739, Elizabeth, daughter of Aram; Oct. 8, 

1737, Anne, daughter of Eugenius Aram ; Jan. 8, 1761, Henry, son of widow Aram ; 
1774, Ann Aram, Knaresborough. The last mentioned, Aram's widow, died in a 
house in Blucher street, then called Hitton lane. A son of Aram's, Joseph, settled 
at Green Hammcrton as a saddler, was married and had a family.

clear and concise account of his family antecedents, in.whk-h 
he traces the family back to the " lords of the town of Evrani 
or Ayrain, now called Eryhohne, on the southern bank of 
the Tee, and in the Bishopric of Durham." 

At Gowthwaite Hall, near Pateley Bridge, was born in 
1730 the celebrated professor, William Craven, D.D., scholar 
and philanthropist, of whom Whittaker, the historian, 
remarks that w to the attainments of a profound scholar 
he added the humility of a saint, and to the manners of a 
gentleman the simplicity of a child." Dr. Craven's first 
tutor w r as the notorious Eugene Aram, who taught the bov 
in his father's house at Gowthwaite. He was appointed 
professor of Arabic at Cambridge in 1770, and elected 
master of his college in 1789. Another pupil of Aram's at 
Gowthwaite Hall was George Homer, who was at one time 
deputy paymaster of the forces at Guadaloupe. 

In the vicinity of Knaresborough, the Plumpton toll-bar 
is noteworthy for having been kept some time last century 
by Daniel Dodson, originally a flax-dresser, and after- 
wards a school-master of Knaresborough. Daniel Dodson's 
daughter married Thomas Greenhalgh, whose grandson, the 
late Hon. Frederic T. Greenhalgh (Greenhalge), is the 
well-remembered governor of Massachusetts. He was a 
native of Clitheroe, in Lancashire, where his grandfather had 
settled early in the century, and where his father, William 
Greenhalgh, an engraver by trade, was born in 1810. 

Beyond Gowthwaite are two deep and romantically 
wooded ravines excavated by once powerful torrents. They 
are called Colthouse gill and Riding gill. Close by is a 
field long known as Wave park. The farm buildings at 
Colthouse are built on morainic drifts, and the gill-beck 
flows down the north side of them. 

Formerly this was a grange belonging to Byland Abbey, 
and appears to have got its name from a grant made by 
Roger de Mowbray to that monastery of pasturage here for 
eighty mares and their foals. A place of similar appellation

is situated at Ribblehead, under Ingleborougli, where the 
monks of Furness had a park or enclosure for the rearing of 
mountain ponies, bred for various service in their wild and 
rugged country.

THE SCOTTS OF SPRINGFIELD AND PALMER, 

MASS. 



BY O. P. ALLEN. 



The first glimpse one obtains of John Scott, the progenitor 
of the name in Springfield and Palmer, is in the Springfield 
record of his marriage in 1659. After giving the subject 
much study and research, the writer has arrived at the con- 
clusion that possibly John and William Scott, who both 
arrived in Springfield and Hadley, respectively, at about the 
same time, were brothers, and were emigrants from England. 
Future research may disprove this conclusion, but thus far 
no trace of their parentage has been found in this country. 
One evidence of the consanguinity of these two men is the 
similarity of the names of their children. 

John Scott m., July 26, 1659, Sarah Bliss, dau. of 
Thomas and Ann Bliss. Her father, an emigrant, settled in 
Hartford about 1639 ; the date of his death is not known, 
but his widow, a capable woman, removed with her children 
to Springfield, where she d. Aug. 28, 1684. 

John Scott bought a small tract ot land in 1664 on the 
Agawam river. The records say that in 1664 " The Jury also 
presented Capt. Pynchon and Jno. Scott for not maynteyn- 
ing their fenses on the West side of ye River, a breach of 
the law of this Jurisdiction." He was one of the soldiers

The Register Book: of the Lands and Houses in

being the Records generally called "The Pro- 
prietors' Records." Printed by order of the City Council 
under the direction of the City Clerk. Cambridge, 1896. 
Ro. 8vo, pp. 409. 

This sumptuously printed book, issued from the Univer- 
sity Press, and distributed under an order of the Common 
Council, is due in a great measure to the efforts of the late 



306 BOOK NOTICES. 

Walter W. Pike, ably iee6k<Je<J by Mayor Bancroft, and 
successfully brought to a completion by the present appre- 
ciative City Clerk, Edward J. Brandon. 

Of the series of Proprietors' Records there are three vol- 
umes of originals, besides a copy not entirely accurate made 
in 1841 ; of these volumes, I. is practically for the period 
between 1634 and 1741, with a few later entries ; II., 1751- 
1773 ; III., 1784-1829. The original pagination is adhered 
to, although it is evident that certain leaves are misplaced in 
the bound original, a circumstance to be borne in mind by 
genealogists. Moreover, the dates heading the early pages 
and descriptions of lots are not those of the day such lota 
were granted or purchased, but the days when the land- 
owners brought in their lands to be registered. 

Other volumes of the series are to follow, and when the 
city shall have printed her first volume of town proceedings, 
and vital statistics, both of which begin with the year 1632, 
a mine of original evidences will be easily accessible t<> 
students.

Fitchburg, 189G. 8vo, pp. 384. 

In 1895 the Fitchburg Historical Society petitioned the 
city government to print and so preserve the early record^ 
of Fitchburg and those of Lunenburg prior to the setting-oil 
of Fitchburg (17G4), and this volume is the result or rather 
a part of- the work ordered by a vote of the city govern- 
ment. The Proprietors' Records are to appear as a separate 
volume. When the territory of Lunenburg was first estab- 
lished as a town it was called Turkey Hill, and extended 
westward from Groton. This was in 1719, and the original 
survey and allotment is printed followed by the town record 
to the close of 17G4. The latter part of the volume gives 
the family records from 1727 to 1764, and are supple- 
mented by a good index. Lunenburg, established in 17:?*, 
is the south part of Turkey Hill. 



BOOK NOTICES. 307 

It is to be hoped now Fitchburg has done this much that 
the older town will complete its printed record to recent 
times, keeping pace with the avowed and praiseworthy pur- 
pose of Fitchburg to bring her records down to date. 

The book is well printed by the Sentinel Company, a 
home concern. 

The Early Records of the Town of Providence, 
Volume X., being the Book called Town Council 
No. 1, 1692 to 1714, etc. Providence, 1896. Sq. 8vo, pp. 
158. 

The Town Council in Providence considered little else than 
probate affairs and the regulation of taverns, etc. Therefore 
this volume is really a probate-act book for the period, and 
should be examined in hand with Vols. VI. and VII. of the 
series, which contain the first book of wills for the town. 
The editors and commission, Messrs. Rogers, Carpenter, and 
Field, serve without compensation, and aside from these 
printed records have done a great and valuable work in 
preserving and arranging great files of ancient public papers, 
which are now indexed and accessible. 

Supplement to How to write the History of a 
Family, by W. P. W. Phillimore. London, 1896. 12mo, 
pp. 218 to 425. (Pagination continued from the second 
edition.) 

This is a ft guide for the genealogist," particularly for him 
who would seek information concerning English records, 
although extremely useful to beginners. Although this little 
work is styled a ,r supplement," it is really complete in itself, 
and shows considerable acquaintance with American gene- 
alogy and methods, as well as deep knowledge of home 
archives. 

The Thomas Book, giving the Genealogies of Sir 
Khys ap Thomas, K.G., the Thomas Family descended

Buckley Thomas, D.D. N.Y., 1896. Ro. 8vo, pp. 627. 
Illustrated. 



308 BOOK . NOTICES . 

Dr. Thomas has not, we think, shown that Sir Rhys was 
the ancestor of any of the Thomas families of America, 
although nothing is more likely than that he may have de- 
scendants here, but he has given us a very good genealogical 
history of an ancient and interesting Welsh family, and has 
made accessible to those interested a great many clearly 
drawn- up pedigrees, both relating to the Thomas family and 
to allied families, which are especially numerous and well 
treated. No fabulous claim is made, but each reader is left 
to judge from the evidences presented whether or no he can 
agree with the author. 

The illustrations are very uice and interesting. The book 
will appeal strongly to families originating south of New 
England. The appearance of the book is excellent, and one 
only regrets that a more exhaustive index was not attempted. 

Soldiers in King Philip's War, being a critical Ac- 
count of that War with a concise History of the 
Indian Wars of New England from 1620-1G77 (also), 
official lists of the soldiers of Massachusetts Colon} 7 serving 
in King Philip's war, and sketches of the principal officers, 
etc., etc., also, lists of the Narraganset Grantees, with an 
appendix, by Geo. M. Bodge. Leominster, 1890. [Ro. 
8vo, pp. 502. 

This is the greatly desired second and much improved and 
enlarged edition of Rev. Mr. Bodge's great work, which first 
appeared in serial form in the New England Historical Gene- 
alogical Register. It is practical^ an official work, for the 
original papers in the State archives are withdrawn from 
vulgar inspection, being sadly worn, and there is no official 
of the State so able or competent to master the details a- 
Mr. Bodge has done. No library or lover of genealogy can 
afford to be without this book ; to students it is invaluable. 
The new matter is a careful compilation of facts and names 
which formerly had to be sought in various books and place-, 
and are properly inserted, being necessary to supplement 
the records of soldiers and service.

The Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents, Trav- 
els and Explorations of the Jesuit Missionaries in 
New France, 1610-1791. The original French, Latin, 
and Italian texts, with English translations and notes ; illus- 
trated by charts, maps, and fac-similes ; edited by Reuben 
Gold Thwaites. Vols. I. and II. Acadia. Burrows Bios. 
Co., Cleveland, 1896. 

The two volumes so far issued of this series show that the 
promises of the publishers in their prospectus have been 
more than kept. Under the able editorial supervision of Mr. 
Thwaites this edition, as complete as may be made, of the 
Relations will take a foremost place among American classics. 
Students have been able to procure copies of some of the 
Relations and access to others in the original text by seeking 
out the libraries so fortunate as to possess copies, but except 
one or two well-known editions of selected Relations the 
bulk of these valuable papers have been practically inacces- 
sible to those who need them most. 

The English translation is literal in the sense of true to 
the meaning of the original without losing the power of ex- 
pression in good English, thus making the Relations interest- 
ing reading for those who may not be especially interested 
in the doings and sufferings of the Jesuit Fathers and 
pioneers of New France and covering that whole territory 
now partly in Canada and partly in the United States. The 
students of New England history, as well as those of the 
history of New York, of the Middle West, and Mississippi 
valley, must seek for information in these reports written by 
the men in the field to their superior. 

The Relations begin with Lescarbot's and Bertrand's papers 
of 1610, and ten documents are printed in these two volumes 
extending to 1614. 

As a contemporaneous expression of opinions upon 
certain enterprises, of collections of data, scientific, espe- 
cially anthropological, and by men qualified to write of what 
they saw, the value of these papers has long been realized ;

now, through something more than a mere speculative busi- 
ness enterprise, a well-known Western publishing house i* 
about to place all this material in the hands of any one who 
may care to investigate the early settlement and civilization 
of North America. At the end of each volume appear the 
valuable annotations of the editor: biographical, biblio-

are fortunate.

Governor Edward Winslow ; his Part and Place is 
Plymouth Colony, by Rev. W. C. Winslow. Paper, pp, 
10. Reprinted from New York Genealogical and Biograph- 
ical Record. 

This paper of Dr. Winslow's is a brief resumi of the 
chief events in Winslow's life and of his services to Plv- 
mouth Colony — not that such a tribute is needed to establi.-^h 
the fame of the Governor, for his name will forever live in 
history. The rewriting of the history of the Pilgrims which 
is now going on, the demolition of the former ideas as to the 
prominence of the Pilgrim polity, leave standing out more 
prominently than ever the characters of such men as Wins- 
low. He was one of the three or four of the first or sub- 
sequent companies who could claim gentle blood. Ho, 
together with Brewster and Bradford and the true Pilgrim 
contingent on the " Mayflower, " made it possible for the 
working out of the plans of the religious portion ; and in- 
culcated a spirit which enabled the small and weak colony 
to survive until strengthened and sustained by the Ponton 
migration from the Bay.

Mr. Sharpe has published many papers of local historical

another worthy genealogy. 

The Genealogy of Thomas Ruggles of Roxbury, 
1637 ; of Thomas Ruggles of Pomfret, Conn., and Rut- 
land, Vt. ; OF A LITHE A L SMITH OF HAMPTON ; OF THE 

Descendants in part of Samuel Ladd of Haverhill. 
By F. L. Bailey, 1896. Paper, pp. 44. 

This is a well-printed and well-arranged family ancestral 
record, and much information is given concerning the 
families of Preston, Corliss, Griffin, Haines, etc., and shows 
the great pains of the compiler. 

The author does not show the paternal ancestry of Thomas 
Ruggles but in order that a mistake in the " Chute Gene- 
alogies," * lately published, may be corrected, we here give 
the line : 

Thomas Ruggles, of Nazing and Roxbury, was the son of 
Thomas, of Sudbury in Suffolk and of Xazing in Essex, 
whose father, Nicholas, of Sudbury, was a son of Thomas 
Ruggles, of Sudbury, elder brother of William Ruggles, and 
whose will was made 21 June, 1547. From William 
Ruggles above mentioned descended Thomas of Hartest 

DO 

(son), and Thomas of Lavenham, Suflak (grandson), the 
latter of whom married Margaret Whatlock and was not the 
father of Thomas of Roxbury, as stated by Mr. Chute. (See 
the "Ruggles Lineage," privately printed for Henry S. 
Ruggles, of AVakelield, Mass.) 

Essex County Dialect, by Helen Mansfield, reprinted 
from the Bulletin of the Essex Institute. The writer seeks 
to show the Teutonic origin of many words and names in

from the early records of derivations of names, changes in 
spelling and pronunciation, etc. It is an almost unworked 
field, and has been approached by Miss Mansfield in the

"The Irish in America" is the title of a reprint from tin 
columns of the "New York Sun" of a letter by J. h 
O'Connell, of Washington, in reply to President Eliot. A- 
usual it is a generalization of the claims based upon the i . 
that a man born in Ireland is Irish ; or, born in AmerN », 
American. That is not to be disputed ; but the emigrants 
from Ireland prior to 1800 were, from what Ave know of them, 
and particularly those of earlier date, nearer the origh 
stock of Scotch and English who had been pouring into In 
land for two hundred years and more, and were undoubted 
more nearly allied to Scotch and English people than llu 
Irish emigrants of later years. They were a fine peopl< 
and more readily fall into a Scotch or English classical 
than Irish. Scotch-Irish is a term which perhaps original* i 
among the inhabitants of Ireland who adopted the Scotd 
Presbyterian religion, and when confined to its use in An ■• ■ 
ica is a very good term, as it describes a certain clas* oi 
people, as "Yankee" describes a certain class of peopN 
One would not call a German or Irishman born in V n 
England of foreign-born parents a "Yankee." He might 
term himself. Why is it that most of the advocates oi i' 
claims of an Irish foundation and origin of the people oi t« 
great country are from the class that is not usually embrace 
by the term Scotch-Irish ?

NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS. 






Although Putnam's Monthly Historical Magazine has 
reached its seventh year, counting from its first appearance 
as the Salem Press Historical and Genealogical Record, 
the number of subscribers remains small — too small to pro- 
vide any profit after the payment of the printer's bill. The 
Magazine was not published with any expectation of profit, 
and there would be no disappointment on that score if sub- 
scribers would but remember to meet their dues promptly ; 
but as high a proportion as fifty per cent, wait several months 
boioAc ie milling, and Itere is usually quite a number who 
fail to pay their dues until one, two, or even three years in 
arrears. The Magazine needs the money, and our friends 
should remember that fact. Every subscriber receiving this 
number is requested to remit promptly for the year 1897, and 
for such sum as he may be in arrears. j 

It has been suggested that those who appreciate the Mag- 
azine and would like to see it thrive, form a class of special 
subscribers or patrons, contributing $5 or $10 toward the \ 

expenses yearly. As there is no society or group " back- , \ 
ing " the Magazine, such a scheme would be eminently 
proper ; but the same results will be obtained, and in a way 
to do more good, if those who have sufficient interest in the. 
publication of early New England Records and early Amer- 
ican Genealogy w^ill subscribe for one or more duplicate 
copies to be sent to small libraries in their vicinity, or to 
friends interested in genealogical pursuits. 

A remarkably interesting series of early records have been 
prepared for the coming year, and it is hoped that the 
volume for 1897 will appeal to even a wider constituency 
than former volumes. 

Subscribers are requested to send their subscriptions for 
the coming year to Eben Putnam, Publisher, Box 5, Dan- 
vers P.O., Mass.

UN PARALLELLED OFTER. 

A limited number, about 20 sets, of the Historical Collections of the 
Essex Institute, at Salem, Mass,, comprising volumes three to eight inclusive, 
six volumes, are offered at Si 2 per set. 

This offer must be taken advantage of at once, and will stay open but a 
short time. 

In the early volumes of the Institute Collections is an immense amount 
of the most valuable genealogical and historical material, 

A complete set can only be obtained for Si 25, and single volumes are 
worth all the way from $3 to $25. 

The six volumes offered for $12, contain besides other articles of similar 
nature, the following important and in some cases invaluable genealogical ma- 
terial. 

enealogies of 

Nichols, 

Pope, 

Rantoul, 

Ropes, 

Upton, 

Ward, 

Jersey families. 

Notices of Philip English, Gen. John Glover, William Simms, Gerrish, 
and all the Registrars and Judges of Probate of Essex Co., a very considerable 
list, together with biographical notices of members of Essex Lodge of Free- 
masons, of contributors to the fund for improving the Common, etc., etc., in all 
a fairly complete account of prominent Salem people of bygone generations. 

Articles on early commerce, witchcraft, old houses, piracy, Antinomians 
Puritans and Seperatists, slavery in Essex County, etc. 

The records of births, marriages and deaths in Lynn, Rowley, Salem 
(from P), and Church baptismal records of Salem, Peabody, Lynnfield. 

Lists of Deaths in Beverly, Hamilton, Rowley, Wenham. 

The first book of Grants in Salem is printed entire, and also the first vol- 
ume of Quarterly Court Records, beginning in 1636. 

Tne houses in Salem in 1793, andUpham's account of some of the earliest 
houses, also a history of the Old Planters, the first settlers of Salem from 
Cape Ann. 

Journals of Craft at siege Louisburg and Boston, of Clough at Louisburg 
and Curwen's letters from there, as well as Capt. Page's diary in 1779, and 
Rev. Joseph Green's diary immediately after the Witchcraft troubles. 

Account of Dartmoor prisoners, a journey to the West in 1817, early 
American currency, Methuen in the Revolution, Essex Freemasons, William 
Kidd the pirate. 

And what is of the most importance an abstract of early wills, inventories, 
etc., proved in Essex County, up to about 1690. 

It is needless to say that the series of wills, the book of Grants of Salem, 
and the Salem, Lynn, Rowley records, are alone worth far more than the price 
asked for the six volumes, all of which are thoroughly indexed. 
EF" Orders will be filled as received until the lot is exhausted. Send check 
with the order. No volumes sold seperately, 

I can also furnish a few volumes of a later period including Emmerton 
and Water's English Gleanings, which cannot be obtained elsewhere.

IV ADVERTISEMENTS. 



PROBATE RECORDS OF ESSEX CO., MASS. 



Published under the auspices of the Essex Institute. 



Abstracted and Edited toy Etoen Putnam. 



It is proposed to print abstracts of the records of the county of 
Essex, Mass., now deposited in the office of the Registrar of Pro- 
bate. 

These abstracts will contain all of genealogical value which can 
be gleaned from the wills, inventories, administrations, etc., and 
every name occurring in the settlement of the estates will thus be 
printed and hereafter easily reierred to. 

The early series of wills, etc., proved in the old county court, 
are already mostly in type, having appeared in the early volumes 
of the Essex Institute Historical Collections. The present compila- 
tion will begin with those estates recorded in Volume I of the Probate 
Records, and documents on file, but not recorded, will be included. 
The method of publication will be that adopted by the Maine Gene- 
alogical Society in printing the Probate Records of Lincoln county, 
Me., i.e. j monthly parts of thirty-two pages, ten or twelve parts to 
a volume, at $5 per volume. 

The series will be maintained until all the records have been 
printed to the close of the 18th century. 

As Essex county furnished a very large number of the emi- 
grants to other parts of Massachusetts, to New Hampshire, Ver- 
mont, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Western and Central 
New York, Ohio, Illinois, and states further west, the great conven- 
ience to genealogists, which this publication will afford, should be 
immediately recognized, and substantially supported. Only a limited 
number of copies will be printed, commensurate with the subscrip- 
tions received. 

The copies remaining after subscribers to the monthly parts 
have been supplied will be held at the price of $7.50, and from the 
limited edition the price will surely advance ; it therefore behooves 
genealogists and librarians to place their orders at an early date. 

The first part will be ready for delivery when fifty subscriptions 
have been received. 

An early response to this circular is requested, in order that the 
edition may be decided upon. 

Address all orders, with check or money order payable to 

EBEN PUTNAM, Salem, Mass.

UN PA RA LLELLED OFFER. 

A limited number, about 20 sets, of the Historical Collections of the 
Essex Institute, at Salem, Mass,, comprising volumes three to eight inclusive, 
six volumes, are offered at $12 each. 

This offer must be taken advantage of at once, and will stay open but a 
short time. 

In the early volumes of the Institute Collections is an immense amount 
of the most valuable genealogical and historical material, 

A complete set can only be obtained for $125, and single volumes are 
worth all the way from $3 to $25. 

The six volumes offered for $12, contain besides other articles of similar 
nature, the following important and in some cases invaluable genealogical ma- 
terial. 

enealogies of 

Nichols, 

Pope, 

Rantoul, 

Ropes, 

Upton, 

Ward, 

Jersey families. 

Notices of Philip English, Gen. John Glover, "William Simms, Gerrish, 
and all the Registrars and Judges of Probate of Essex Co., a verv considerable 
list, together with biographical notices of members of Essex Lodge of Free- 
masons, of contributors to the fund for improving the Common, etc., etc., in all 
a fairly complete account of prominent Salem people of bygone generations. 

Articles on early commerce, witchcraft, old houses, piracy, Antiuomians 
Puritans and Seperatists, slavery in Essex County, etc. 

The records of births, marriages and deaths in Lynn, Rowley, Salem 
(from P), and Church baptismal records of Salem, Peabody, Lynnfieid. 

Lists of Deaths in Beverly, Hamilton, Rowley, Wenharn. 

The first book of Grants in Salem is printed entire, and also the first vol- 
ume of Quarterly Court Records, beginning in 1636. 

The houses in Salem in 1793, andUpham's account of some of the earliest 
houses, also a history of the Old Planters, the first settlers of Salem from 
Cape Ann. 

Journals of Craft at siege Louisburg and Boston, of Clough at Louisburg 
and Curwen's letters from there, as well as Capt. Page's diary in 177S, and 
Rev. Joseph Green's diary immediately after the Witchcraft troubles. 

Account of Dartmoor prisoners, a journey to the West in 1817, early 
American currency, Methuen in the Revolution, Essex Freemasons, William 
Kidd the pirate. 

And what is of the most importance an abstract of early wills, inventories, 
etc., proved in Essex County, up to about 1690. 

It is needless to say that the series of wills, the book of Grants of Salem, 
and the Salem, Lynn, Rowley records, are alone worth far more than the price 
asked for the six volumes, all of which are thoroughly indexed. 
§y Orders will be filled as received until the lot is exhausted. Send check 
with the order. No volumes sold seperately, 

I can also furnish a few volumes of a later period including Emmerton 
and Water's English Gleanings, which cannot be obtained elsewhere.
